Otmoor and the Beluga

So another balls up today. I wanted to twitch something for a change.  News of the Pallid Harrier in Herts didn't come out till after 2pm - which was too late for Jacob and I'd already hedged my bets on the Pallid and postponed going for the Beluga for tomorrow- just hope it's still there tomorrow or else it's going to be another mess. 

Went to Otmoor just to get out in the field. 1 Marsh Harrier, 1 Hobby, 1 Kingfisher, 2 Whinchat, 5 Stoncechat, 60+ Swallow, 50+ House Martin and 10 Meadow Pipit.

Small Copper- good numbers of insects in the warm conditions, mainly Migrant Hawkers and Ruddy Darters with plenty of Caddisflies too.
