Dipper and Grouse on a wet and horrible day

Yesterday i had a walk around Poolsbrook in Derbyshire nothing of note but my first Common Sandpiper of the year.
We were to return home today but not before taking the scenic route through Middleton in Teesdale to Alston. We had a walk along a path id Worked on from Low Force to High force. Plenty of Common Sandpiper, a Dipper in its usual spot with young, Common Redstart and plenty of Willow Warblers. On the higher ground a Red Grouse and amazingly a Male Goshawk...
Finished off watching the Black Grouse at Langdon Beck with 8 Males.
