The Nuthatch, what Sian calls ‘The Bandit’, which
unlike the Treecreeper can run up and down a tree-trunk, is back visiting the garden a lot again and, like so many birds now, the moulting is over and the colours strong. As you can see, it particularly likes the sunflower seeds, taking them off to a nearby tree-trunk to pierce with its strong, dagger-like bill. They will use nesting-boxes, reducing the entrance hole with mud till the right size, but we have never been lucky enough to have this happen. Conditions: Glorious, sunny day. Temperature: Max 20- Min 13 C.
