Northern Finland, still 14 March 2015.
After the great grey owls, we went to a fast-flowing river.
Though there was still ice and snow all around, including on top of rocks in the river, the water there flows so fast that it is open.
This benefited a dipper couple.
They live in a wooden nest box underneath a wooden bridge. There is another nestbox, a bit further under the same bridge. Maybe grey wagtails will use that box when they will be back from spring migration.
14 March dipper photos, unfortunately, were not so good. However, we went back to the dippers later, with better photographic results. So, stay tuned!
