Dipper Logo

We’ve chosen the Dipper as our logo for Blackstairs Eco Trails. This lovely little bird is at home in the streams around Mount Leinster and the Blackstairs and also on the River Barrow.  It sits on a rock in the middle of a stream or river, then gives a quick flit in search of food. It’s dapper colouring and evocative cry is one of our favourite sounds of the Blackstairs area.

The Dipper is a great indicator of water quality and it will not frequent habitats where there is local pollution.
