Dipper with food.

By rontear  
Dovedale is on of many dales in the Peak district. Certainly a favorite of EPZ's for landscapes it also has wildlife. Plenty of birds in Dovedale as well as walkers and dogs! Found this individual busy feeding chicks, could not get too close as thought of bird abandoning nest is not on. From a distance this was taken.

Great capture, Ron. One of my favourite birds. A pair were nesting near where we were staying in Monsal Dale so we got some good views as well.

An eye catching panoramic crop showing the Dipper in it's natural environment, complete with bugs in it's beak!

What a great shot - showing dipper's haunt of the rushing stream in the background. I love photos like these that show the animal in its environment. Could do well in IWP (which I see you've done well in in recently).
