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.

9th Jan 2022: Egyptian Goose

Most of the week there has been the usual species. On Thursday a Snipe flushed up from the cattle field as a jogger went by, which is a fairly uncommon place for them to be.

Today I took part in the B.O.S. short day count (some info. here ) with Clive. Naturally, this included the Grimsbury patch and we added a few new species to the year list. The highlight being an Egyptian Goose that flew over south and other species were 4 Gadwall at the Borrow Pit pool and a Kingfisher along the canal. This brings the Grimsbury year list up 64 which is fairly good for this early in the year.
