John visited yesterday and saw the Willow Tit along the river, had a Herring Gull at the reservoir and a Skylark went over.
This morning john and I were out early looking for the Otter, but it didn't show today. Steve and Colin found two drake Gadwall on their walk up and were joined by a pair of Wigeon. We have had a nice few days of wildfowl records, by Grimsbury modern day standards anyway! Steve and Colin also had a 3CY Yellow-legged Gull at the Borrow Pit pool.
Mike and Colin were at the gull roost this evening and had fifteen Herring Gulls, a Yellow legged Gull and about 1500 Black-headed Gulls, plus the usual Lesser Black-backs and a few Common. The two Gadwall were still present too.
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.
