Nuthatch.

By johnke
The Nuthatch is a plump bird about the size of a great tit that resembles a small woodpecker. It is blue-grey above and whitish below, with chestnut on its sides and under its tail. It has a black stripe on its head, a long black pointed bill and short legs .It is fast and agile and can also be found hanging upside down. As in my image it doesn't stay long and is about to Fly away.

It breeds throughout England and Wales and has recently began to breed in southern Scotland. It is a resident, with birds seldom travelling far from the woods where they hatch.

Thank you for all your kind comments and your support and to Dave, Mike, Lynne and Karen for the valued awards.

Stay safe and keep well,

Kind regards....John

Typical nuthatch pose but I also like the way the light has caught the plumage to bring out the colours and the detail.
