With the weather being wet and windy today I felt I needed some inspiration and as I would not be able to find it outdoors I decided on picking an unmarked tape from my wildlife filming archives. It turned out I had picked out a good one and with footage on that I had totally forgot about and the footage was of Dipper's on a small river at Dyserth in the area of North Wales.
Below is a few screen grabs:
Not the best shot but one of the closest shots I could get

The Dipper watches from above as I film from my hide opposite the nest site.
