Mark had the first Garden Warbler of the year this morning. It was in the Upper Cherwell Valley just north of the woodland reserve. This brings the count of warblers for the year up to seven. Hopefully will will also get Reed Warbler and possibly Grasshopper Warbler to complete the set.
Colin and Steve were out too and also had a Coot with seven chicks in the valley.
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.
