Nuthatch................................................................. another rare garden visitor

I must be getting lucky... another bird I don't see very often in the garden has stopped off for a feed.

                     Nuthatches are mainly woodland birds so it's always a treat to see one in the garden.

I have just checked and it's almost a year to the day since I last captured one on the feeders.

He even had time to check out my log feeder which by coincidence is also a year old this weekend.
I have hung it all around the garden and it has attracted many different species to feed on the suet and seeds we stuff in the holes drilled in the wood... and a bit more natural than the metal feeders for pics.
Enjoy your weekend.

The word must be out in the bird world that you would like some visitors! Of course it helps that you feed them so well. great photos.

The word is going around among the birds that you are home and need entertainment (and the food at the restaurant is good).

Love them, with their dapper eye liner. We get quite a few in Northumberland.
