Dipper !!

Had a morning up at Nuns bridge, Thetford today to hopefully connect with the long staying continental dipper that has been papped onto every blog, forum, new's paper in East Anglia and beyond.......

Arriving just after 7:30 still pissing down with rain I ventured north along the river thet and chatting to various people it seemed that the bird had been a bit hard to catch up with off late, perhaps getting ready to head back home or perhaps just feeding elsewhere.

But still this beautiful place has plenty to offer, with singing Nuthatch, Marsh Tits, Goldcrest, Siskins, Grey Wagtails all still fairly scarce in east London and Treecreeper(s) which showed exceptionally well and perhaps the best Ive ever seen and with the rain now easing off I had a great couple of hours with the camera enjoying such species.

mmmmmm this is not a bird ?? 

More on this chap tomorrow.............
