The Nuthatches Sitta europaea, paid a couple of visits to The Coppice feeding station this morning.

A good view of the rump feathers on this oneTongue

Apart from a few shots of them and a bundle of L-tt ones, that was about it
Never managed to nail hardly owt else.
Gave up at noon, when the sun broke through the white cloud. Shadows and light bouncing about all over the placeSad

Shouldn't complain really, as it looks as if Spring as finally arrivedGrin


Many thanks to Ian (ianrobinson) & Trev (achieverswales), for their awards given to yesterdays Blue titTongue
Cheers again guysSmile

Complaining about the sun, Adrian, you disgust me Wink. Dead loss here, the wind reared its ugly head, yet again, and made it quite impossible for bug photography Sad Carol
