Otmoor: RSPB reserve: 25th January

Unconfirmed report of a male Cirl Bunting in with a mixed flock of 40/50 Reed Bunting, Chaffinch and Goldfinch seen from the hide at 14:45.


  1. I also understand through the grapevine this person saw a Great Grey Shrike in Cholsey 2 days ago! any more info on this please?

  2. If I were Jason, I'd save my time and fuel ;-)

  3. Thanks for checking out the Bunting Jason. A major rarity in the county these days.

  4. Paul, the GG Shrike in Cholsey was actually in Jan 2013 though I mis-read the date so sorry for the confusion.
