Saturday morning was fairly quiet. Steve and I both went and apart from a group of Siskins (Steve thought up to 18) there wasn't much of note.
This morning John was out and the highlight was Snipe that landed at the reservoir. Something very rarely seen here. There was also one Wigeon, 1 Common Sandpiper, a Blackcap at the northern end and at least seven Chiffchaffs. There was a little bit more interest overhead too with seven Skylarks and some Siskins flying over.
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.
