Frosty & Bright Morning at Otmoor
It was a very bright and frosty morning today at Otmoor, and I was lucky to see a lot of activity. The birds all seem to be very hungry, and so upon arriving ~30 minutes after sunrise I saw a number of species! The fieldfare and redwing seemed practically endless, chacking and seeping away in the hedgerows, darting between paths and gobbling down various winter berries. Much more elusive than these, I spotted a few marsh harriers gliding low over the reed beds, looking for their morning meal of a small mammal or waterfowl. I was also particularly happy to spot both a snipe and a bittern – however they were very far away and so I wasn’t happy enough with any of my photos to post them here. However I am very keen to get back to Otmoor again soon to try and get some more successful snaps of them both!
