Unfortunately a car in the RSPB car park was broken into last week, it was a visitor who was visiting the reserve for the first time. This is a very rare occurrence on Otmoor but it does happen occasionally. The person had left valuables in view in the car, which made them an easy target.
Please do not leave valuables in your car, but if you have to, make sure that they are out of sight. You may want to consider leaving your glove box open so that potential thieves see that there is nothing in there.
We would also ask that if anyone notices anything suspicious in the car park that might relate to this, please report it to the RSPB office on 01865 351163, or email at email@example.com.
