Black -bellied Dipper, the continental variety of our normal White-throated Dipper
This individual has been in Norfolk since mid January and alters its 'favourite' place on a regular basis. It moves along the River Glaven spending a few days at places such as Letheringsett, Natural Surrouding NR and Hunworth.
I located it at the Ford at Hunworth but unfortunately it was never near enough for a good photograph.
