Having flown from the tree below, this bird was visible for only 20sec, during which time it caught a fish and departed!

After an totally blank visit to Farmoor, it was good to find something in photo range. This bird was initially very close to the road, but flew a bit further away before I could get on to it.

One of two on F2 from the causeway. A very rare bird in Oxon, but not the most exciting!

See above. This one was very inactive. Just sitting on the causeway apparently dozing and allowing a very close approach.
