Spent a few hours recent at one of South Derbyshire’s prime spots – Willington Gravel Pits and also at Melbourne Pool. A few good photo opportunities presented themselves. 

Kingfisher – above 3 images – Willington GP, Derbyshire – Tony Davison© – This is a male as there is no orange to the base of the bill.

Water Rail – above 2 images – Willington GP – Tony Davison© – Seems to be a good year for this species.

Great White Egret – a bonus, as this bird flew past the hide in the early morning autumn sunshine. Tony Davison©
