Dipper fest

Dipper Cinclus cinclus
Kingfisher Alcedo atthis & Grey Wagtail Motacilla cinerea - two usual neighbours of the Dipper, sharing the same stretch of stream.
Dippers are amazing. They never end to entertain you. The pair on the Hubelj stream in Ajdovščina seems already settled, always sticking around the area where they nested last year. The male today also delivered a short, but melodic song, while perched on its favoured rock. Video here and here (watch in HD).

On these links I also uploaded two videos of two different Three-toed Woodpeckers from last Sunday. Listen out for the characteristic "feeding knocking". Enjoy.
