IMAGE OF THE MONTH
This hungry little dipper juvenile was one of two sucessfully reared chicks. The weather has been a real challange for wildlife in the scottish highlands this spring with the cold and wet conditions. The adults had to work hard to find sufficient food. Once fledged the adults only feed the chicks for up to 2 weeks, then they must fend for themselves, but they have been given the best chance by it’s hardworking parents.
