Our local reserve at Willington is by far the best place in South Derbyshire, at the moment, for passing waders. This morning there were some stunning Icelandic Black-tailed Godwits, with at least 15 individuals, most of them juveniles. Along with 6 Dunlin, 2 Green Sandpiper, 2 Common Sandpiper and 12 Common Snipe and the usual Lapwing flock, was a good mixed bag. The eclipse drake Ring-necked Duck was still present but distant.
