First for Garden - Nuthatch
Thursday, 17 February 2011
Alright, don't get too excited, maybe 'mega' is a bit of an overused word these days, maybe it won't figure highly on your much sought after list but my first ever garden Nuthatch was a bit exciting. On the phone to county recorder Tim Dean talking about 'the gull' and casually gazing at the grazing Woodpigeon on the lawn I glanced sideways as something landed on one of the trees, something blue, something NUTHATCHY... I blurted on the phone made excuses grabbed the camera by which time it had flipped into the willow above the pond and managed three frames through the kitchen window before it was gone. To avoid lots of emails asking to see said mega I've added a picture below. If it turns up again, I'll be opening the door, charging £5 (all to charity of course after costs) and telling the neighbours to take a holiday. No press please.
