Walking back from the Bank in Ponteland at lunchtime I noted a pair of Dipper flying back and forth with nest material. Picking it off a grass bank and shingle outcrop further upstream they would dunk the material in the water first before flying back to the nest site with it.

The birds were quite intent and oblivious to me standing over them, the noise of passing traffic or a couple sitting on a bench talking and taking little heed of their noisy brats at the waters edge.

Had they not been there and the sun in a different location I would probably still be there now!
