3 Dippers today.
Sunrise the youngster & adult on the River Rea. The youngster singing & standing upright.
Late afternoon the other youngster along the Bourn Brook. No singing or zipping. Some stretching, high speed flying & quick stops.

The sunrise River Rea pair having a standoff at the ramp and whilst they did I could see it getting lighter. The Kingfisher went past & the Buzzard was back.
This afternoon on the Bourn Brook, 2 Kingfisher at the blue bridge & first time one sat under the roundabout.
I just saw the white of the roosting Dipper as it flew up & in really quick.

I see on Birdtrack someone has recorded a dipper on the Rea at Wychall Reservoir ,King's Norton. Could this be a fourth bird in addition to the ones at Cannon Hill Pk and on the Bourn Brook ?
