This is no Farmoor, Otmoor or Port Meadow. This is Grimsbury. It's Grim up north!

16th Mar 2017: Sand Martins and Little Plover
John was out yesterday and there was very little around and it sounded like most of the Chiffchaffs had moved on. He did see a Small Tortoiseshell though.
Today was a little different and at lunch time John had five Sand Martins and a Little Ringed Plover. The plover is apparently the first one reported in the county this year. In the evening there were still two Sand Martins and the plover, which may have been joined by a second at dusk. A Jay was seen at the back of the woods again late afternoon.
