Possible male Nuthatch

There has been odd sightings of a Nuthatch feeding in our area since late last year.

However, there is now some excellent news in that in the first week of January 24 I had not one but two Nuthatches feeding in my garden at Low moor.

The pair stopped for a good 10 minutes feeding on peanuts and suet blocks before leaving together.

This is a garden first for me..and I have only had to wait 40+ years.

Looking at the two birds together I believe they maybe a pair as one bird shows a stronger terracotta colour on it’s flanks (male) whereas the females flanks are slightly lighter.

If this is the case fingers crossed they find a suitable nest site..IN OUR AREA!
