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.

28th Mar 2017

John was out this morning and had a Sand Martin and a Little Ringed Plover at the reservoir. A few of the regular dog walkers also described a bird that flying around just before he got there that sounded very much like an Oystercatcher...

There was a Little Grebe at the reservoir that John spotted at lunch time, a bird rarely found at the reservoir. In the evening John and I were out and were joined by our friend Dan. A flock of c.40 Sand Martins had gathered up below a very dark cloud. They circled widely around the reservoir for quite a while but didn't come down to the water that much. Other than that the only other bird of note was a Red Kite.
