Derwent Dipper delight

Thursday morning went out early and decided to call past the Derwent starting at the weir beside the tennis club. A slow walk up to wards Swallwell  visitors centre was interrupted by the sighting of what i thought were a pair of adult Dippers below on the river but turned out to be an adult with a juvenile. The only drawback was the fact that the clouds were dark grey and the light was lousy. I got a number of images that would have been stunning given better conditions but have turned out to be O.K. Here are a few of the "young 'un".


  1. Hi John,
