Swans and Starlings at Otmoor, Oxfordshire

  1. Having seen loads of Murmurations on TV , i had the pleasure of seeing one in real life the other night on my way back from work , it was just west of the Metrocentre , bottom of Swalwell i think , absolutely beautiful and mesmurising…….

  2. Following on from yesterday’s Swans and Starlings at Otmoor pictures today a few more pictures from some of the other birds I saw at RSPB Otmoor. The star of the show was probably the Marsh Harrier, a first for me:
