Cormorants (Dominic Couzens)

Cormorants at their usual roost, Longham Lakes, 26th October 2011 (Dominic Couzens)

The table gives maximum totals per month for the site as a whole, including the pylons near the lake where these birds often roost (above).

Most of these are Wetland Bird  Survey (WEBs) counts organised by the BTO and carried out by Trevor Thorpe and Robin Trundle. Many thanks to the counters.
