A very frustrating two days not being able to get to Minsmere resulted in me still not having Cliff Swallow on my list. On Sunday (06 November) I paid homage to Needham Market's Black-bellied Dipper which has been residing around Hawks Mill for the past couple of weeks, locating it at the weir mid-morning. I spent fifteen minutes watching and photographing it and got a couple of other birders onto it before it flew downstream, maintaining my 100% success rate of never having dipped a Dipper.
