'˜Extremely rare' bird spotted near Bolsover
An extremely rare bird has paid a visit to a nature reserve.
The Caspian tern was spotted at Derbyshire Wildlife Trust's Carr Vale Nature Reserve near Bolsover on Friday.
Nick Brown, of the trust, said: "We think there are only about 290 records of Caspian terns in the UK and most of these sightings have been coastal.
"It is extremely rare to see one in Derbyshire – this is only the ninth record. I was lucky enough to see one at Willington Gravel Pits in 1993.
"There's also been a Sabine's gull at the reserve since October."
Caspian terns are very large compared with other terns and have a carrot-coloured beak.
They nest in Scandinavia, around the Baltic, with others nesting much further east.
