Dipper City - November 2010

Some friends came to visit us from Norfolk and on one of the days we decided to go to Exmoor. Coming from Norfolk they never get to see many hills so it seemed a good plan. We eventually reached Lynmouth and walked up the river where the great flood in the fifties had destroyed most of the town. On the day we were there it was a much quieter scene and we were soon on the hunt for a good photograph of a Dipper. These amazing birds spend all their time along fast flowing rivers and streams, a lot of the time walking under the water to find food that hides under the pebbles on the bed of the stream. After some careful stalking we managed to get some very nice shots.
