Wood Nuthatch

Another late afternoon stop at my local patch (Ashtead Common) to check out a few more pathways produced sightings of:
  • Long-tailed Tits (6)
  • Blue Tit
  • Great Tit
  • Blackbird
  • Magpie
  • Moorhen & Grey Heron [on the Great Pond]
  • Jay (2)
  • Crows (32) & Jackdaws (6+) [on the fields behind Rushett Farm]
  • Starlings (50+) [flying over Malden Rushett]
  • Fieldfare (25+) [flew off the fields into trees in the wood - presumably their night roost]
  • and Nutchatch (see photos below)


  1. well that is one handsome nuthatch! We don't have those in Michigan!

  2. Great photos. I especially like the one where it is looking up towards the sky. I see you are getting used to that new camera of yours with these lovely pics!

  3. What a nice nuthatch.

  4. Shelly, Kallen & Steve.
    Yes, it performed nicely if a little high up. You also have some smart versions in the US.


I hope you enjoyed your visit and I always appreciate your comments and feedback.
