Wye Valley Birding Part 4 (Nuthatch)

I wondered who was making all the noise in the forest, it turned out to be the beautiful Nuthatch (Sitta Europaea)
Found in the Europe and as far north as Iceland the Nuthatch feeds on nuts, insects and can often be seen creeping along tree limbs, similar to the tree creeper found in North America.


  1. Met you on Brockweir bridge. Love Nuthatches. At a distance I can normally tell the difference from our native treecreeper because generally they run up the tree feeding whilst the nuthatch runs down

    What a great shot! Really like this one in particular.
