Dipper

The dipper is so-called because of its behaviour of dipping in and out of the water as well as its ‘bobbing’ action.

It lives alongside fast-flowing shallow streams and rivers and often nests under bridges and in walls. This small stocky bird with white throat and breast is capable of walking into and under water in search of small fish and aquatic insects on which it feeds.
