One of your very best, Sylvia. The detail, 'pose', colours and b/g are all just spot on. Beautiful bird photography.

would you please post one to The Coppice Smile

It is the one place that I would have thought, would have been the ideal habitat for them.
Not spotted one in the seven months I have been there.
Apparently, they are another of those species, that do not stray far from their birth place.

A really sharp and superbly detailed Nuthatch Sylvia. It makes a welcome change to see him in a pose other that the 'head down' version ( super tho it is )
