Kelk Beck - Dipping the Dipper

Finally made a move for the Black-Bellied Dipper near Bridlington, but sadly I waited four hours in sub 5 degree temperatures to a no show. It has not been reported today though, so it would seem it chose to move to a different part of the river.
On the birds that were there, there was very little outside of the ordinary, but there is nothing wrong with that, as there were some nice buzzards overhead, as well as smashing views of Yellowhammer and Redwing. 
-Common Buzzard
It was also nice to see Jeff Cox on site, a former Halifax birder now residing on the east coast. Its always nice to see birders from home whilst on my travels, don't worry Jeff, the dipper did not show after you left.

Species List:
