Good morning all,
Today a "Nutty", my first upload of this species.
They have proved very elusive and difficult to capture on camera. At my
hide location they are not very common, thought the pair that come to the
feeding station are regular visitors. Being a "smash and grab" feeder, as
anybody knows who have tried photographing them it can be frustrating
getting them where you want them.
Thanks for looking.
Colin

great shot!! Especially for a first.
My local nuthatch is the same as yours, it will only pose in front of the grease ball ( got told off for that) next to a twig that goes through etc.

Will have to change tactics Smile
