Had a brief look over Otmoor today in the cold and windy conditions.
There wasn't much about.1 Little egret was seen flying over greenaways.
Quite a few birds were around the feeders,Chaffinchs,Greenfinches,1 Redpoll over,
the odd Reed bunting and a G.s.woodpecker.
1 Water rail was heard calling from the dyke near the feeders.
The odd flock of Starlings and Fieldfares were seen flying around.
