Dippers inhabit fast flowing streams with rapids, small waterfalls and gravelly beds.

This project started in 2020 when we found 9-11 pairs between Marshbrook and Longnor.

Please click here for the 2021 report, included in the main bird survey report (PDF) – see starting page 20.

We need to check all the Dippers for colour-rings, which identify all birds individually.

If you see a Dipper between the middle of March and beginning of July, please look for evidence of breeding, and rings and please tell Leo Smith
