I have been to three locations now that were recommended for Dippers. I dipped on all of them! So, today we went for it again. A location I have tried before. Dowels Brook in the Wyre Forest.
It's a four and a half mile circular walk in beautiful surroundings. What made the walk even more enjoyable was great company, and successfully seeing a Dipper. Four sightings in fact. Not sure how many were repeats, but I know I saw a least two different birds.
The pictures aren't great, but decent record shots to remember the day and the birds by.

It's been a long time since I last saw a Dipper. I won't forget these in a hurry.
