Dipper.....Cinclus cinclus
The record shot of the Dipper is the best I have come up with so far...but I am working on it and hope to get a better shot rather soon.


  1. The reticent Dipper 'pon riparian perch. Still an attractive composition - shows the habits/habitat nicely.

  2. Another one I have never seen and not likely to here! A lovely bird :)

  3. Hi Bob.

    I cannot get up close enough to do them justice...but I am working on it.

  4. Hello Stuart
    I agree it shows the habitat and I have watched them swim on the water and dive underneath. But they do seem a very wary bird so a little more fieldcraft is called for before I get the good shot.

  5. Thanks John.

    Maybe digiscoping is the answer to this one.

  6. Hi Jan.

    Yes I have noticed it does seem to be absent in the Midlands and the eastern parts of the country south of Grimsby.

  7. I love these little river birds.
    A few days ago i saw a Kingfisher in a sewer line
    (It used to be a stream ) near my house.
    Too bad people don´t value these little streams
    so filled with life.

  8. I wonder what the law says on these matters...
