    Dipper photos Ireland - food type?

    I searched for an appropriate forum- what I am trying to do is identity what type of food the Dipper has here. It is part of its regular diet- it dives in swims underwater and comes back with this or similar. It then proceeds to 'bang' it against a rock before finally eating what is inside...

    Cormorant question: Photo taken in Ireland

    I took this photo today on the Dodder River in Ireland. A few weeks ago I posted a pic of I think the bird nearest the camera and was informed it was displaying its breeding plumage. I just wonder if both birds in this pic are males? Cormorants

    Cormorant

    Many Thanks. So it doesn't give any indication of age - other than it's an adult?

    Cormorant

    This is a photo I took today of a cormorant on the River Dodder in Ireland. I'm just wondering what is the significance of the 'white plumage' on the bird's head?

    Irish Dipper( Cinclus cinclus hibernicus)

    Is that to basically say that there is one overall European 'Cinclus cinclus' and that the sub-species( say gularis and hibernicus) do not differ to any significant extent?

    Irish Dipper( Cinclus cinclus hibernicus)

    Thanks- thread title corrected to show correct lower case first letter! Anyway - one last post/photo of the Dipper from today on the Dodder( Dublin) - brown tinge below white breast is obvious Dipper https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/, on Flickr

    Irish Dipper( Cinclus cinclus hibernicus)

    Thanks indeed for your reply. If I am interpreting it correctly - the name Cinclus Cinclus Hibernicus might not be totally accurate as birds with the 'orange/brown' bit under its white bib are not confined to Ireland but are widespread in England and possibly parts of mainland Europe?

    Irish Dipper( Cinclus cinclus hibernicus)

    Here is a recent photo which I took of a Dipper on the Dodder River in Dublin, Ireland https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/, on Flickr I'm reading that the distinction between the Irish sub-species and its Eurasian counterpart is a brown tinge or band at the base of its white...

    Thanks Chris - the light has been amazing the last few days where I live along the Dodder River in Ireland -and the birds seem to enjoy 'sunning' themselves!
