Nuthatch


On arrival at our cottage we both noticed some feeders in the front garden with a couple of bits of stale bread in them, but still being visited by a couple of Blue Tits. We managed to get hold of some peanuts and half coconuts filled with fat to see if we could entice some more birds to visit, I even managed to fix a more natural perch in the form of an old tree branch close to the feeders in the hope of a bird landing there before using the feeders. In the morning the feeders were full of 3 species of Tit, Coal, Blue and Great, all happily feeding away until the arrival of a Nuthatch which caused all the other birds to disappear. He wouldn't sit on that blessed tree branch though, so I am afraid you are stuck with these 'unnatural' looking shots.

  1. Not really a 'sitta' is he? Certainly not a poser.
    When I read your notes I feel that I must be seeing lots of bird types and thinking they are all the same species. It's difficult when you are trying to learn!

    1. Very good Bazza, you noted the Latin name! Sorry, I mislead, talking about other birds and then just putting photos of one species up. Just Nuthatch photos, I am afraid, the others were rubbish! Yes, even worse than these!
