Yep, the others don't usually bother to try and know their place when it comes to Nuthatches and food supplies! Nicely captured.

They can be quite aggressive particularly with their own. They are also very picky with the mixed seed, rooting around chucking stuff about until they find exactly what they want.

Anyway, that aside, it's a lovely sharp picture. Smile
