After another misty start to the morning which gradually brightened up with a temperature of 10°C on our arrival at Dowley Gap.We had a slow start with birds difficult to find apart from the Mallards on the canal & unusually a couple of Moorhen. We saw the usual BH Gulls at the Water Works along with Magpies,Wren,Pied Wagtail & Dunnock. Further along as we took the path near the River through Hirst Wood a Goosander flew away from us.Also a short stretch ahead the highlight of the morning was a Dipper which we have missed seeing here for a long time.Also seen were a couple of Grey Wagtails & heading back to the car there were several Jays around.
