In what is probably the fastest ever turn around in Langford WeBS history, here we have the results from the count last Sunday. As we enter the summer doldrums, butterflies and dragonflies start muscling birds out the way to take centre stage, but there is still a fair amount of avian activity around to keep people interested. With the potential of something more exciting never far away (yesterdays spoonbill for example).
We still have loads of swans on site, most of them non-breeders, who seem to have taken a shine to Langford this year. Don't discount all the bird white birds on site as just being swans though, as along with the aforementioned spoonbill, we've also had a semi-regular great white egret on site. A post-breeding flock of lapwing have been loafing around, along with a very unseasonal wigeon.
