A visit to Otmoor this afternoon, initially struck by the lack of wet areas presumably as a result of the dry summer and subsequently a lack of birds!
2 Marsh Harrier seen quartering the reed beds and the odd Red Kite and Buzzard overhead.
Very few duck species seen, Mallard, Teal and Wigeon were the only ones noted and a few Common Snipe were the only waders.
Everything was quite distant so a lot of cropping on the photos.
A Cetti’s Warbler heard and quite a few Starling coming in presumably to roost but did not stay ‘til too late.
