Dipper Delight

Saturday 5th October a.m.
 After our earlier visit to Leeshaw we decided to head for Keighley & check out the River
Worth near Damems.There was some sunshine but still cloudy with a temperature of 12°C,
we soon saw our hoped for bird a Dipper in the River. This was quickly followed by a second
& third bird, with one likely to be a juvenile.They were moving along the River but we did
manage to get some snaps when we found some cover close to the water.Many though were
in poor light under the canopy of the trees, but some were in decent light.We also had the bonus
of a Grey Wagtail rounding off a good morning.
