Nuthatches and Coal Tits

Lots of birds are begining to come to the Bird Viewing Area to feed. Those of us who have visted in the last week have especially enjoyed the feeding antics of the two Nuthatches we are seeing regularly.

Really enjoyed looking at this series of images. I think you've captured some really characterful poses, including a classic nuthatch pose. Great work!

Yes great poses Alan.
The birds' habits are certainly changing. Had my first House Sparrow pair of the Autumn today at my little crumb table in the garden.

Thanks Ric/Steve. It has been great to sit and watch,as well as photographs,of the Nuthatches. Their responses to other birds, in defending their food source, has been aggressive. They fly off regularly, I presume to stash the seeds for later but every so often they can be seen poking seeds into the tree trunks at the Bird Viewing Area and then cover them up. It is great behaviour to watch.
