Cotswold Water Park Langford Lakes
Grid Reference SU 03963 37081

My main reason for visiting Langford Lakes was for the Kingfisher after a tip from Stewart Canham of the Dorset Wildlife Trust. Situated along the south bank of the River Wylye and populated by lakes, a stream and wet meadow, it provides a reasonable selection of species.

Brown Hawkers in particular are abundant here, being fond of the foliage-rich pathways for feeding and roosting.
