This is no Farmoor, Otmoor or Port Meadow. This is Grimsbury. It's Grim up north!

There is a running total year list in the link above.

Please send in your bird sightings to the B.O.S. and/or to me directly for inclusion on the blog. If you have some photos you would like to contribute please let me know (contact via the comments box on the right if you do not have my email already). Thank you.

08th Aug 2016: Ringo and Blackwit

At Lunch time John had a Common Sandpiper fly over as he was leaving the reservoir. Late this afternoon John called in again after finishing work. He was waiting for me before we left for a trip to Otmoor in search of the Purple Heron. Using up 30 minutes was the main aim but he ended up finding two new birds for the year list.

A Ringed Plover flew across the reservoir calling and settled on the eastern bank and there were two Black-tailed Godwits on the western bank. All juveniles. They stayed long enough for me to have a quick look and then we were off.
