Dipper chicks

DipperChicks2
Today I had the opportunity to photograph these tiny Dippers in their nest here in the Forest of Dean. I was with a licensed BTO ringer, and wouldn’t go near the nest otherwise. There were six chicks in here, all of which were ringed very quickly and safely returned to the nest.
