Dippers are the birds that go where other birds dare not: fast-flowing rapids of icy cold water in our rivers and streams.
They obtain much of their aquatic prey by swimming underwater and walking along the riverbed and the confident stride of this dapper dipper sent in by Nature's Home reader Paul Fisher shows just how it's done.
Thanks for sharing Paul - your shot is the Nature's Home photo of the week.
