Grimsbury Reservoir :: 21 February 2015

Started following @grimsbury_birds (Gareth Blockley) on Twitter. On his updates I noted that there were some long staying goosander on Banbury Reservoir. As they hadn't been added to my year list I thought I should pop along to have a look. Very quiet on the wall to the far end of the reservoir to catch up with the goosander group but soon was rewarded with a few other species, Goosanderincluding a flypast from a kingfisher heading along the river towards Spiceball Park. Made it back before the rain came.

Today's sighting around the reservoir (21) included: carrion crow, blackbird, blue tit, great tit, dunnock, black headed gull, pied wagtail, raven, kingfisher, buzzard, cormorant, great crested grebe, wren, mallard, magpie, woodpigeon, rook, kestrel, robin, goldfinch and lesser black backed gull.
