A typical pose from a Nuthatch, or to give it it's former name, Nut-hack.
Originally called that because of the way it would lodge Hazlenuts and Acorns in the bark of trees and "Hack" away at them with its tough beak.

The only British Bird that can run down trees!!.

Full of facts this evening!!

Anyway, hope you like this shot, and many thanks for the votes and comments on "The Watcher", very much appreciated.
