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.

15th Jan 2023

Monday morning Wally had a Wigeon at the reservoir and on Thursday Adrian T. saw c.1000 Lapwing and 25 Golden Plover over the UCV.

On Saturday Mike Pollard found an Egyptian Goose on the UCV floods, outside of/not viewed from the patch.

This morning there was very little of note at the reservoir or up the valley. I scanned for plovers and the goose but couldn't see any. A little later in the morning c.30 Lapwing did fly over south so there are still some around but possibly further north and quite a way from the patch area. I had several Snipe in the usual field and a Water Rail calling from the flooded reedy area near the river.
