There is never any guarantee as to what will be seen on the walks, but today was an amazing day for wildlife at Langford and even the fact I managed to fill both my wellies with freezing reedbed water didn't dampen the excitement of my wintery water-level-and-restoration-area-checking wander round the reserve... Bearded tits, green sandpiper, kingfisher, wigeon, redshank, bittern, water rail, marsh harrier, roe deer, barn owl and at least 20000 starlings in various groups doing a bit of sky dancing before going down to roost. Isn't Langford brilliant.
