The Nuthatch ( sitta europaea )
Always find these most attractive little birds and this is one captured at our feed station before it was covered with the white stuff !!. I do love to see the characteristic bend of the neck as they go scampering down the tree trunk/branch.
Large will show better detail .
Grateful thanks to all for comments/views and votes on the Dunnock. Most appreciated.
