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.

3rd Dec 2017

John had a pair of Raven over the reservoir on Monday and a single Yellow-legged Gull on Tuesday.  Another single Yellow-legged Gull on Thursday (the regular 4CY) and four Teal on Friday.

Yesterday morning I heard the Willow Tit in the wood, but couldn't see it, had a Snipe fly over the reservoir and saw one Yellow-legged Gull up at the Borrow Pit pool.
