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 May 2022: Grasshopper Warbler

John was back out for more again this morning and found a Grasshopper Warbler reeling to the east of the river near the northern end of the reservoir. After I'd joined him and heard it we saw a Wheatear in the cattle field and a male Whinchat (so different to yesterday's bird) fly from the ditch up to the western side of the reservoir. There was also 3 Common Sandpipers, 4 Yellow Wagtails and at some point a Little Ringed Plover dropped in.

Clare Curnow later confirmed that there were 2 Wheatears. Another great morning.
