RSPB Otmoor WeBS Monday 13th February

WeBS from Monday 13th February.

Clear blue skies and a flourish of peregrines, harriers and buzzards made WeBS particularly challenging and spectacular for us on Monday morning with our biggest counts of lapwing and golden plover all being flushed up! Good numbers of teal and wigeon as well all around the reserve and, your eyes don't deceive you, one lone snipe brazing the wind on the eastern edge of the reserve.
