I made the most of a day off and had a good look around this morning. There was nothing of particular note seen but it was sunny and the birds were singing and displaying, which made it feel very spring like. A couple of Herring Gulls dropped in to the the reservoir late morning. In the wood there was the Marsh Tit and Willow Tit, both calling at regular intervals. The Goldcrests were particularly vocal and actively chasing each other around. In addition to the birds there was a Brimstone butterfly around the brambles on the edge of the wood.
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.
