Otmoor spring .........

21 Apr - Perfect weather for a spring visit to Otmoor with a red sunrise over a slightly misty landscape. A Warbler chorus including Grasshopper Warbler, and at least 3 Cuckoos calling including a very active bird. Waders included displaying Redshank and Lapwing and drumming Snipe, also a bonus passage Whimbrel. A pair of Marsh Harriers, a booming Bittern, and a flyover Crane completed the line up. Spring at its best. En route, the flood at Eysey held 6 early morning Black-tailed Godwits and a couple of Greenshank, as well as the usual LRPs and Oystercatchers.
