Thanks! Here in Northern Europe dippers are mostly breeding in Norway but some are wintering in Finland.

Thanks David! My favourite, too. Good to photograph, not too shy. At the rapids there are about 50 birds wintering.

Wow…..We are lucky if we get 5 together…then in the spring summer they are very territorial and it is families only you get to see at a time.
