Dippers galore ......

A lunchtime stroll along the Wooler Water produced 7 dippers from the Chatton road to just beyond the sewage works.  There were at least three pairs and two of the males were singing.  A male with white secondaries in the right wing was also present - this bird has occupied a territory in the bowling green area, all year.

There was also a flock of 110 fieldfares that were accompanied by 26 redwings, 2 song thrushes and 12+ blackbirds.  Other birds of interest included a female goosander and a mixed flock of tits that included a treecreeper and several goldcrests.
