I managed a walk around lunch time and there was a small group of gulls gathered, including seven Common Gulls of various ages. In the wood there was a couple of Chiffchaffs and several Coal Tits. I'm convinced we've had a decent arrival of Coal Tits in recent weeks. Otherwise quiet in the very blustery conditions.
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 Oct 2017
Steve and John were out early this morning, John recently back from his honeymoon and getting straight back to the patch! Steve saw two Stonechats up by the Borrow Pit pool and there was a couple of Common Gulls at the reservoir. A few Redwings and Siskins were on the move overheard too.
