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.

22nd Apr 2017: Redstart

I was out again this morning and had three Common Sandpipers at the reservoir and there were at least four Whitethroats around. So there are obviously new arrivals and birds moving against the wind. Otherwise, there were two Little Ringed Plovers, several Sand Martins through and everything else was fairly unchanged.

However, later in the afternoon Colin found a male Redstart in the hedge between the water treatments works and the cattle field. It wasn't present in the evening but is another new bird for the year.
