KWACS Talk: The History and Wildlife of RSPB Otmoor – 4th October

The History and Wildlife of RSPB Otmoor, presented by Gary Smith
Wednesday 4th October at 7.45pm
St Mary’s Church, Kirtlington

We hope this message finds you well after a fun-filled summer and now that the nights are drawing in, the leaves are falling off the trees and our hedgehogs are curling up into tight little balls we welcome you to KWACS 2017 – 2018 winter lecture programme.

Otmoor is a truly special place for wildlife and particularly birds with nearly 200 different species recorded this century, including the spectacular starling murmurations, but Otmoor has a varied and very interesting history from a huge expanse of marshland that villagers used as common land in the 1300s to the SSSI classified nature reserve we know today.

The talk will be followed up with a visit to the RSPB reserve on Sunday 19th November at 1pm to hopefully experience the starling’s breathtaking ballet of the sky.

We look forward to seeing you soon.
