11 August - I saw a dipper flying west along Poynton Brook away from the new bridge being built over Poynton Brook at Mill Hill Hollow. It almost seemed to have come out from the under the bridge where there is a new outfall for the stream as it emerges under the bridge, which seems to indicate that it has tolerated the roadworks so far.
