Thank You Karen, yes I agree. I love to watch them bob up and down and dive. I took some more photo's of Dippers yesterday. I was lucky to see 3 on the same stretch of water. There was a pair and an intruder that was being constantly chased off. Plenty of scuffles going on but too dark to photograph the action. There are a few photo's on my Flickr page if you would like to look at.....www.ukbirds.co.uk
Had a walk around the Bristol City Park this morning, 3 x kingfishers and 3 grey herons. Also a grey wagtail, no dipper.

Lot to learn
In reply to gaynorsl:
A very dull grey day today so I decided to have a quick walk through the park to check on the dipper. It was still showing well along with the kingfishers and grey wagtails.
This is one of the 3 grey wagtails that I saw yesterday
There has been a lot of rain in the past week and the River Frome is much higher and faster flowing. I checked out the usual spots where I usually see Dippers and was surprised to see this Dipper carrying out his business in his usual location. However, it was very disappointing to see so much rubbish in the river. The Dipper seemed attracted to it and would land near the old cans and at times standing on the debris.
