Yesterday, Saturday 12th November 2011, two lucky observers watched Derbyshire’s fourth/fifth Glossy Ibis for 15-30 minutes at Willington Gravel Pits, before the bird flew off and disappeared, much to the disappointment of several top Derbyshire Listers!! Lucky for me I didn’t need it for my Derbyshire List!!

Needless to say there was no further sign of it this morning. Willington was back to normal!! A few Little Egrets, a pair of Pintail, a flock of 34 Golden Plover and a selection of common Wildfowl, including 5 Goldeneye were all of note.
