Dippers are the world's only truly aquatic passerine birds and for the birdwatcher and naturalist the Dipper's remarkable swimming and diving abilities are only added to by the beauty of their preferred but threatened habitat, the fast flowing streams of the wild uplands. Territorial behaviour, breeding biology, diet, movements and population dynamics are all discussed in relation to the Dipper's adaptations to an aquatic lifestyle in environments coming under increasing pressure from man's current changes in land use. The text is supported by numerous figures and photographs, and also by the delightful drawings of Darren Rees.
