17th February 2013
With another fine day forecast i finally decided to head off to Norfolk for the Black-bellied Dipper at Thetford, I arrived on site at about 10:30 & was soon wathing the bird down to a few feet however the bird remained constantly in the shadows & being stubborn i never really like to go above iso 400 i took a chance on getting any shots at all! (But being less than 2hrs away if it stays I'll be back!!) After spending a good few hours in good company with plenty of people coming & going I decided to head off for the car...... shots below......
After leaving the Dipper & heading for the carpark I noticed a few people looking down the river towards me before realising a Otter was swimming towards me & was soon joined by another,which then performed for the next 20 odd mins sometimes close enough to touch (What a fantastic sight!! & totally unexpected)
