I only recently discovered that my Great Grandfather Henry Waterson had painted Ebridge Mill – an oil painting found amongst my late father's belongings – on a newspaper cutting of the mill, my father had written 'painted by my Grandfather Henry Waterson...'. Although the painting is fascinating (see following post on blog), we decided to auction it off, as none of us have children to pass anything on to, so some things we kept and others have gone to Keys Auctioneers for their January/February specialist sales. I had never visited Ebridge Mill and the painting had intrigued me. How odd, that shortly after discovering this painting, that a Black-bellied Dipper should turn up at this mill!
Phone-scoped in poor light
Sitting on the bank – honest!
On the way home, I stopped to take pictures of Blickling Hall which was lit up like a firework display. Lots of people had also stopped to take pictures of this spectacle. I'm at work tomorrow as normal, but have New Year's Day off.
My best pictures of a Black-bellied Dipper were taken at Thetford on 2nd February 2013.
