I managed to have a look around the patch this morning, concentrating on the woodland. I failed to find the Willow Tit or the Chiffchaff, but I did manage to add a few other bits to the year list. A Red Kite was drifting around over to the west of the reservoir, a Meadow Pipit flew over south, a Reed Bunting flew over near the river and a female Sparrowhawk was hanging around the car park when I left.
Steve also had two Collared Doves. So the year list is ticking along nicely now.
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.
