Another all-night Dipper sesh!

Last night Vince, Jane and I tackled the bridges of the River Clun for more Dippers - as per the last post.

Results in brief, as follows;

Bridges checked 41
Dippers found 44
Dippers caught 37 (28 adults and 9 juvs)
New birds 9 (4 adults and 5 juvs)
New colour-marked birds 29
Retraps from previous years 22
Retraps from earlier this year 6 (2 adults and 4 nestlings)
Groin injuries sustained 0!

 Look no hands!   Last dipper photo for a while.
This bird is an adult male, note the chestnut tinge to the eye and the lack of white tips on the primary and greater coverts.
