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.

12th Mar 2017: Blackcap

Another new bird for the year for John this morning, when he had a Blackcap singing along the river. This seems very early and we assume must have been a bird that overwintered locally, but who knows. Otherwise there were several Chiffchaffs around still too.

This afternoon we headed out to see if there was a gull roost and possibly get a Med Gull, but the only gulls that came in were two Lesser Black-backed Gulls. We did however see a female Stonechat along the western side and have a Yellowhammer over, so a nice visit. there was also a Jay around at the back of the woods.
