Dipper

The Dipper is my second favourite bird (after the lapwing). It is a lot to do with the fast flowing mountainous streams they live on, which make such great settings for pictures. This is taken in Wales at a site I first did them at 30 years ago and the nest is still in the same spot. Taken with a slow shutter speed to blur the water and from a hide as Dippers in Wales are not as tame as their Derbyshire cousins. 1/20th at F14. 200 iso. Canon 800mm lens. EOS 1d Mk1V
