This morning, 26th December 2015, I decide to go and check out the brand new hide at Willington GP, a Derbyshire Wildlife Trust Reserve. The hide was only completed last Tuesday and, as hides go, I must say it is an excellent addition to the reserve and for the local birders. I can imagine many an hour will be spent inside, over the months and years ahead. Not much about on the lagoons this morning, but a Kingfisher put in an appearance, albeit a little distant from the hide. I managed a few record shots. I’m sure better opportunities will be forth coming. It was a male by the all black bill, females have an orange base to the bill. Another day of dull grey conditions, making photography a little difficult. High ISO = Noisy Pictures. Oh for some prolonged sunshine. I’m running out of days now to add to my year list. As is typical at this time of year, a major rarity was discovered, a Mourning Dove was found in a garden in Lerwick on Shetland. Typical, another good bird on a far flung island, so not quite sure what to do about this one YET!!
