It’s the night before Christmas and tucked safely in an old nest in a riverbank, I’m sound asleep. My nest is lined with bits of moss and old feathers and twigs, long abandoned from the spring. Winter is always hard for us dippers as food is scarce, but so far, I’ve foraged enough insects and small fish to stay strong and healthy. Thanks for looking out for me this Christmas – thanks to you, and Derbyshire Wildlife Trust, I’m looking forward to a wilder future.

Thanks to Derbyshire Wildlife Trust, and their supporters like you, dippers have a wilder future. By giving someone the gift of nature this Christmas, you’re helping us to make our rivers stronger and healthier. We’re working in our own nature reserves and beyond to help wildlife recover. We’re restoring landscapes to make our rivers free from pollution and litter. We’re putting the meanders back in rivers and helping floodplains to recover.
