On saturday decided to head out Oxford way forst stop was Farmoor Reservoir started the bottom circle walk and had a few Blackcaps and Chiff-chaffs singing and over the water had 4 Sand martins the first of the year. Further around out on the water quite a few Great Crested Grebes and a beautiful summer plumage Red-necked Grebe first view in the summer coat and showing pretty well fishing away and giving some nice views. Then around the Causeway quite a few Pied Wagtails and a Common Sandpiper showed well briefly.
Then headed to Otmoor where the place was alive with warblers Blackcaps and Chiff-chaff in quite high numbers and with a few Willow Warblers and my first Sedge Warbler of the year. Finshed up along the Roman Road section when the sun decided to pop and had a few Butterflies with Orange-Tip and Peacock showing themselves.
