After a tip off on Saturday I found myself again walking along the Horton Burn in search of the elusive mainland Cramlington Dipper. As I walked from the old fire station end two Kingfishers flew past. As I approached the road bridge I saw the Dipper move from the side of the Burn and fly west towards the park.
So that was my last birding action of 2012. A quiet year by recent birding standards but still some good local activity at West Hartford and a few lifers and county ticks thrown in along the way to. My obvious birding highlight was the trip to Mull but days out in Cumbria and in the county have also been good. I really need to put more effort into this blog.
Happy new year everybody
