Nest building wren and a dipper

Dipper, Cinclus cinclus
This is the last blog covering our Sheffield trip in April when I enjoyed daily walks along The Porter Brook where I watched a wren nest building, saw a pair of mating toads and 
found a dipper hunting. I also enjoyed a metal detecting rally in Derbyshire. I visited my brother Keith in York who was recovering well from a double bypass. We had a lovely lunch in a restaurant and enjoyed the ceramics exhibition in the York Art Gallery.
