This was our first visit to Otmoor so didn't know what to expect. I had looked at the reserve map on the RSPB website that we now know is not to scale! Looking at the map we thought that we would park up and have a short walk to the 'hide' and coffee! After the drive down, I was certainly ready for one. Anyway the 5 minute walk turned out to be a tad longer, so much so we found a bench parked our bottoms and braved the cold for a while to get our fix and also be entertained by a hunting Kestrel.
Not a great photo as it didn't come close enough, but for the record:
Here we added Great Crested Grebe and Shoveler to our list, but eventually the main event started:
