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.

1st Apr 2017: House Martin
John and I were out early today. We had to wait a little while for any birds of any note to arrive but just before 7 we had a few Sand Martins arrive and then a Swallow. More Sand Martins arrived and a House Martin appeared amongst them. A little later we had another Swallow. There was at least four Blackcaps around today, singing away quite happily as if they are already settled on territories.
