I had a walk around this morning and had a steady stream of Swifts and House Martins through with the odd Swallow and Sand Martin. There was a Reed Warbler singing along the river by the reservoir and a Common Sandpiper, bizarrely along the river in the wood. I think it was flushed as Steve had seen it flying over the car park earlier.
This evening Mark had two Wheatears in the cattle field and a gathering of c.30 Swifts.
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.
