Spring Dippers

Back in March I spent some time photographing a pair of Dippers.  They were building a nest and most of the time were collecting moss from the rocks, both in and out of the water.  I was lying on the rocks next to the bank to photograph them. It wasn't the most comfortable of photographic sessions, but some rewarding shots were to be had. They were so preoccupied with their moss gathering that they didn't seem to notice me, sometimes coming within 3 metres of my lens.

Photo of the Day - Common Redstart

One from a few years ago.  Richard Steel and myself had a project photographing these that lasted three or four seasons.  It is probably some of the most enjoyable work I have done, they are a real treat to photograph.  Having pulled this image from the files, I see I have over 2400 images of them, a lot of which haven't been sorted. The work of processing and cataloguing images is never ending, it is seemingly impossible to catch up. Maybe one day!

Photo of the Day - Pied Flycatcher

This was taken two weeks ago, again in North Wales. I returned last week but there was no sign of the several pairs that were nesting. Pied Flycatchers just seem to disappear as soon as their chicks fledge the nest.

Photo of the Day - Male Whinchat

Taken today. A frustrating day with my target species being rather elusive. This male Whinchat was a bonus and posed for about five minutes, letting me move in closer and get a clear background.
