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.

27th Dec 2016

John was up in the valley looking at the gulls and reported huge numbers and amongst them over 200 Herring Gulls, five Great Black-backed Gulls, three Yellow-legged Gulls and two Caspian Gulls including a stunning 3CY bird.

We decided to try Grismbury for the roost and Mark joined us. We bumped into Roger Evans who'd seen two Great Black-backed Gulls at the reservoir, one of which was still present when we went up. Unfortunately, that was the only highlight. The few gulls that were around all left and by sunset there were no gulls at the reservoir at all!
