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.

John and Steve were both out this morning and between them they had some good birds. Steve confirmed the Common Sandpiper still present and had two Common Gulls loafing on the buoys. He also found two Blackcaps in the scrub at the northern end of the reservoir, which is good as we haven't seen any for a few weeks now.

John had two Teal fly in and land on the river just north of the reservoir, a single Swallow fly through (quite late), a noticeable increase of Song Thrushes and a few Skylarks over. The Willow Tit was in the wood. Best bird though was a Dunlin at the Borrow Pit in the Upper Cherwell Valley.
