AND BACK IN NORTH WALES -

DIPPER

I was lucky enough to spot a pair of Dipper at World's End in North Wales in Spring 2007. They were feeding young and kept disappearing in a pipe in a fast running stream. The pipe ran under the road and - somewhere underneath all this must have been the nest. We watched them for about an hour, disappearing with an aquatic insect or some other suitable food (Dipper.can fly or walk underwater to catch their food) Photographing them was not easy as the light under the trees was rather poor. nevertheless they are fabulous birds and these are three pictures that came out reasonably well.

 

 

 

GREY WAGTAIL - a little further on, at Llanfairfechan, Grey Wagtail are also found near water

 

and they are most attractive birds

Close to the Grey Wagtail were Pied Wagtail , and these birds are found anywhere from car parks to coast, fields and gardens, Pied Wagtails are at ease in any environment

.......and finally, joining the wagtails 13 baby mallard!!!
