Otmoor late September


Had a fantastic walk around the perimeter of the reserve Saturday afternoon. They were cutting hay in the field opposite Lower Farm, Noke, creating an unmissable feeding opportunity for the Red Kites. We counted 23 at one time. An amazing sight, and to have such a close view of the Kites as they plucked the unfortunate field mice and voles from the field was a rare experience for us.
