Here we go again!

Dipper at nest (taken some years ago!)

Yesterday was the first proper day of fieldwork for this year's nesting season. I checked 16 active Dipper nests on the River Teme and River Ithon. Six of them contained at least one egg and 2 birds were already incubating full clutches. It was also the first chance to read a few colour-rings on breeding birds as part of our new RAS (Re-trapping Adults for Survival) scheme.
