Here they are! The WeBS count totals for May. Lots of good birds on site, including a record (for Langford) count of 34 avocets! If you're lucky you might even be able to see a couple of youngsters on the silt lagoon as you stroll up the pubic footpath towards the Beach Hut. It's getting a bit late in the season but the bittern north of the floating bridge is still booming sporadically, hobbies are being seen daily (11 is the highest count to date), lots of fluffy ducklings and gull-lings(?!) are on site and a male garganey has been seen in recent days from the 360 viewing area, so keep an eye out for that too.
