A busy day with lots of people visiting. Steve and Colin were out early and saw two Little Ringed Plovers. They saw a single Greylag in the valley and Grey Wagtails investigating a potential nest site and confirmed a Long-tailed Tit nest along the canal, the latter in the same place as last year.
Later on I saw the three plovers but one flew off north. A Willow Tit in the wood which called fairly frequently and I had a Raven fly over. In the afternoon Philip Walker confirmed the three plovers were back at the reservoir.
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.
