Steve had a go at the gull roost today but the fog closed in! He did manage to see c.500 Black-headed Gulls were in though.
He also bumped into Martin Elliott and he said he had seen an adult Caspian Gull at the Borrow Pit earlier in the week. So that is the second record for the patch area and at least the fifth in the wider area within the space of a week, as we now think there has been one (or possibly two) 1st winters, two 2CY, a 3CY and an adult.
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.
