  13. Hi Gunilla,
    It is always a pleasure to see a dipper at work. Luckily I have seen one this winter, although the winterconditions were completely different from what you show us here.

  16. Hello Gunilla!:)The dipper is a sweet bird. You got some great shots, and I loved the vídeo. I knew they bobbed up and down, or dipped, but I hadn't realized that they could actually immerse under water, as your vídeo shows.Good job!

  17. Gunilla, I can see why it is called a dipper. The water sure looks cold.
