Back to the garden 23 October 2012

It's not all twitching and chasing rarities. No sir. Our resident Nuthatch, presuming there is only one, continues to charm us as it visits the garden feeders on a daily basis. I took the following pictures when it hung upside down and immobile on a feeder after being alarmed by something passing overhead. The first two images show it obviously watching something. Presumably as it did not fly off it did not feel too threatened but it was static on the feeder for a good ten minutes before recommencing feeding. It definitely prefers the head down approach when feeding and similarly when it leaves the feeders it is always when it is facing the ground. They really are smart looking birds and it is a real pleasure to have them visiting our garden after far too long an absence
