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 Apr 2017: Curlew and Hobby

Thanks to a heads up from Dan of a Curlew flying south east away from Balscote, John was able to add it to the patch list. It didn't actually go to the reservoir but he could see it from there circling over the eastern edge of town.

This evening John also added Hobby, the 100th bird to go on to the patch year list, seeing one fly over north. Otherwise I believe it was a fairly quiet day.

  1. I think that's a lactating vixen, Gareth. Seems to be a nipple not a tadger. She's also blind in one eye.

    1. Yes, you are right. I thought I was told it was a dog but the pictures show otherwise.
