Instantly recognisable, active & entertaining, the Dipper is a favourite of many birdwatchers.
We are fortunate to have birds in many areas of the County. Its great to see them doing so well, particularly with range expansion in our lowlands over the recent decade.
Heres a link to my blog post from this Spring which details a couple of interesting interactions of Dipper moving away from water, plus details of 2 nests being built only feet apart......
I was pleased to find & confirm successful breeding for them on the tidal section of the R.Wear with well grown chicks in the nest mid April this year.
The high water mark showing clearly.
I shall add more to this later.
