Dippers and Wagtails

Last week I visited a local valley where dippers and grey wagtails are present.The dippers were busy nest buillding and I was able to approach the area well concealed under camouflage. The dippers carried on with their nest building duties unconcerned by my prescence. Grey wagtails also came close and gave some nice photographic opportunities. All in all it had been nice to get out and about and enjoy the current very settled weather,frosty mornings and pleasant sunny afternoons.Hope you enjoy the images and I will return to the area when the dippers are feeding young in a few weeks to observe and photograph these unique birds.
