Dipper were the main target of our trip to The Peak District. We started at Lathkil Dale where we saw 2 dippers but they were both less than confiding! the numerous redstart and colourful grey wagtails kepts us occupied however.
From there we moved on to Padley Gorge and found one dipper in particular that carried on visiting it's nest numerous time whilst Ed and I watch for over an hour. What a lovely bird this was posing in many different places but on an unfortunatly gloomy afternoon. I'm still really please with the photos and plan to return to see these Charasmatic little birds....Strange one of it up in a tree...
