17-4-11, Willington GP.

WeBS count doen and a Garganey had been present at this superb Derbyshire site for a couple of days so it was straight there fron Barton. The duck was showing on the canal scrape so straight round there and it was not good news, the pair of Garganey had been flushed by a woman walking her dog around the pool. Some people are so thick its untrue. I hung around for about ten minutes when two ducks landed on the pool, it was the Garganey, superb. From here I only had time to get to the first two platforms as I wanted to get back and watch the grand prix. Birds noted were Chiffchaff, Willow Warbler, Blackcap, Wren, Chaffinch, Common Whitethroat, Goldfinch, Buzzard, Carrion Crow, Woodpigeon, Tufted Duck, Canada Geese, Reed Bunting, Skylark, Redshank, Lapwing, Mallard, Coot, Oystercatcher, Great Crested Grebe, Blue Tit, Pheasant, Greenfinch, Cormorant, Long-tailed Tit, Robin, Sedge Warbler, Song Thrush, Blackbird, Grey Heron and Black Headed Gull.
