After Saturday's Red Letter day at Willington Gravel Pits, Derbyshire, (Drake Garganey; Avocet; Marsh Harrier, Whimbrel, Dunlin and 2 Mediterranean Gull), it was not so much a "Hot Spot" this morning, Sunday 27th April. A Greenshank, a near adult and an adult Yellow-legged Gull, 2 Little Ringed Plover,13 Common Tern, Reed Warbler, Sedge Warbler, Garden Warbler and 5 species of Butterfly on the wing. So a few year ticks this morning moves the Year List on to 169.
