A few hours were spent this am at Willington Gravel Pits, in the hope of year ticking a “Gropper”, I missed them again. Still singing apparently, but not to me. Reed Warbler and Common Tern seem to be doing OK here and a family party of Raven flew over. Other wise fairly quiet apart from a few fly through Black-tailed Godwit early doors.
