News from Colin and John today, including two new birds for the year.
Colin started out early and had a Reed Warbler along the river channel in the valley. At the reservoir there was one Little Ringed Plover and a very bold Fox in the morning and in the evening John had the first Swift of the year.
At the Borrow Pit Colin saw a Common Sandpiper and Yellow Wagtail. He also noted that generally there seem to be many more Whitethroats around with at least 10 singing males.
Interest off patch
The Wood Warbler was still in Spiceball Park today singing and showing well for many more visitors. There are lot's of very nice photo's of it on Ewan's blog here.
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.
