A Bonxie (Great Skua) was seen to drop into Willington GP during the late afternoon of 1st April. Fortunately it was still present early morning on the 2nd April and I managed to get  a few record shots of this rather rare bird in Derbyshire, being last recorded in the county in 2014. My 284th bird for Derbyshire. Also of note here were a Great White Egret, several Shoveler, 3 Shelduck and lots of Sand Martin and Swallow. Water Rail calling and several Chiffchaff and Blackcap in song.
