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.

23rd Aug 2016

Several days to catch up on so only a brief update today!

On the 18th Mike and John had a male Redstart to the south west of the reservoir and a  Common Sandpiper. Three Yellow Wagtails went over south. In the evening John confirmed two Redstarts one male and one female. I went up later evening and there were really good numbers of gulls building up including at least two Yellow-legged Gulls,

At lunch time on the 19th John had two Common Sandpiper, the female Redstart still and a Yellow Wagtail. Colin also found a Wheatear in the afternoon.

On the 21st Steve had one Common Sandpiper and Reg had a Peregrine fly over carrying prey, which turned out to be a Woodpigeon.

In the morning on the 22nd John had four Common Sandpiper, the Wheatear still and one Yellow Wagtail over and at lunch time saw that a female Redstart was still around.

This evening John had a Redstart calling that went unseen, two Common Sandpipers and three Yellow Wagtails over high to the south.
