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.
