Solitude ...

Dipper (Cinclus cinclus)

The older I become the more I feel drawn to remote locations and the solitude of being at one with the natural world. I cannot think of anything worse than going on a 'twitch' for a rare bird or insect and being surrounded by hoards of overenthusiastic observers - many of whom with little or no concern for the creature’s welfare. Looking for solitude has recently taken me to a small fast flowing river in North Wales for a private audience with a bird I have not seen in many seasons; the enigmatic Dipper (Cinclus cinclus).

  1. Wonderful bird, brings back memories of my only sighting in Teasdale in the late 60s.
