Firstly, here's a nice article about the recent land transfer that went up on the BBC website recently: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-nottinghamshire-64919469
Secondly, this month's WeBS count recorded the highest number to date of shoveler on site - 108, the previous highest WeBS count was 82 back in April 2021. We must be providing a good selection of tasty water snails and larvae to have lured in so many.

Lots of interesting bird activity on site recently, booming bitterns, the earliest ever Langford sand martin, avocet, red kite, raven, barn owl, stonechats. Coltsfoot is in flower, blossom is on the blackthorns and bumblebees are (when it's not too windy) bumbling around.
