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...
Hello and welcome to my blog.
I'm Dan Trim and birds are my primary interest but I also enjoy local moth trapping/recording and all other aspects of the natural world.
I don't only watch nature but attempt to photograph what I see and a portfolio can be viewed on my flickr, linked from this page.
I have a degree in Biology and currently work in medicinal drug development.
hope you enjoy the blogs!
