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.

07th Oct 2016

A note from Steve on Wednesday evening was that he had counted 267 Canada Geese in the afternoon. Admittedly, they are not the most interesting of species but this is a very good count for here and they get 'joe public' interested in the bird life too.

The last couple of days have actually been pretty quiet with very few birds on the move and nothing new. A Common Sandpiper remains and must be our longest staying bird yet. Gulls are the main interest and yesterday evening John and Steve had six Yellow-legged Gulls (two juvs, two 2CY and 2 ads) and this evening John and I had six as well (one 2CY and five ads).
