07-06-2022 - White-throated Dipper for the annual list
After several attempts, the White-throated Dipper is still missing from the annual list. It looked like it was going to be a beautiful evening. Together with Alwin we drove around 6 o'clock from Uden to the province of Limburg.
After an hour of driving we arrived at the location. It was raining but not bothersome. The search could begin. At the first bend of the stream I thought I saw a Dipper flying away. The bird flew upstream. Alwin stayed on the spot and Maartje and I looked upstream. About 100 meters further we found the Dipper back. Alwin was signaled while the Dipper was quietly foraging. The Dipper luckily stayed put and Alwin was also able to add this species to his annual list. Photos and videos were taken until the Dipper flew further upstream. We couldn't find him anymore but that was ok. With the White-throated Dipper, the annual list has increased to 299 species.
