Thetford - Black-bellied Dipper

After several weeks of desperately wanting to get to Thetford to see the constantly reported Black-bellied Dipper, we were finally able to today. Black-bellied Dippers usually migrate from northern Scandanavia to Finland, Sweden and Germany in the winter, but occasionally occur in Britain. The bird didn't disappoint. I sat photographing the bird from the other side of the river, not bothering it in the slightest. It even began singing quietly to itself at one point! Brilliant bird.

Film - apologies for the poor quality of the upload. The actual video is very clear.
