This workshop is based on observing the beautiful dipper in its habitat and capturing it photographically.
Especially the months of March to June are particularly impressive. During this time the young birds are raised and learn to fly, dive and feed on their own.
At the end of February the eggs are laid and after 15-16 days the young birds hatch. During this time the male is very busy feeding the fledglings and also the female. This is the best time to photograph and observe, because the flight frequency is very high.
After another 24 days, so about the end of March / beginning of April, the fledglings are fledged and also this part is highly interesting for observations and photographs, because the fledglings are still cared for by the parents for about 14 days and sometimes still fed. They also learn to fly, dive and hunt for caddisfly larvae in the water.
At the beginning of May the second brood is usually prepared and the young birds have to look for their own territory. The whole wonderful magic starts all over again.
