On Friday 1st March we went to an RSPB (Royal Society for the Protection of Birds) nature reserve called Otmoor. We were shown round by Roger and Brian.

The purpose of our visit was to find out about different types of birds. Some of the birds we manage to observe were goldfinches, woodpeckers, herons, Canada geese and luckily we also spotted a deer called a muntjac. These are usually hidden in the reeds, but it ran out into the open and we could see it.

As a group we went to six different bird watching places and we discovered over a hundred birds.

We also found some rare hairstreak butterfly eggs.  We were disappointed not to see any starlings but we found out from Roger and Brian that the starlings only come out during the evenings.

Thank you for reading this blog and I hoped you enjoyed finding out about Otmoor.
