The Glossy Ibis which has been doing the rounds of birding sites in the county has now come to Otmoor.  It seems to be dividing its time between Big Otmoor and the Flood Field but has spent some time on the Closes.
There has been a Quail calling and  a Greenshank present, bringing the year list total up to one hundred and thirty. There are also two purring Turtle Doves present. It all bodes well for the warm weekend ahead.
Thanks to Nick Truby for the pictures.
