You are right they are fabulous to watch. Seriously grim conditions out there at the moment. Roughly what sort of number are there in your local population.
Thanks Bob, good numbers at Slimbridge . Flooding & predators can make a huge impact on breeding.
Numbers at Elmley have been between 10,000-15,000, amazing to see.
