Otmoor Starling Murmuration
The starling murmuration on Otmoor has been declining rapidly over the past few weeks and has now stopped. The people who went down to Otmoor to see it last weekend were disappointed. If you know of anyone intending to go down please warn them that it will not get going again until next autumn. It is of course still a great place to visit and is still full of birds.

  1. HI Paul. I was on Otmoor on Thursday morning too. Where did you go to see the barn owl, peregrine and sparrowhawk? I missed them :(

  2. The Barn Owl was very early flying over the hide, and the Peregrine and Sparrowhawk were up high above the first screen fighting with the Marsh Harriers and Buzzards
