This type of photo shouldn`t be in Wigan World as it`s nothing to do with Wigan


Comment by Hugh Wilson on 14th March 2012 at 08:36
Ernest, if the Nuthatch was photographed in Wigan, or in the surrounding area, then it has everything to do with Wigan. Why don't you show us all what pictures you would like to see here by submitting a few photographs of your own?


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 14th March 2012 at 08:57
Hugh, I only wish I could !!


Comment by Maggie on 14th March 2012 at 09:08
Ernest would prefer to look at tits, not nuthatches. Well, untill they catch him.


Comment by Bren on 14th March 2012 at 09:36
totally uncalled for !!!
good picture John.


Comment by Dot on 14th March 2012 at 09:51
I think this is a great shot of something beautiful Well done.


Comment by maggie on 14th March 2012 at 10:15
This is the real Maggie. This is a great picture, presumably shot in Wigan by someone from Wigan. Well done!


Comment by Mick on 14th March 2012 at 10:52
Its not everyday you see a Nuthatch.


Comment by Maggie on 14th March 2012 at 12:27
I am Maggie, and so is my Wife!


Comment by Dave Marsh on 14th March 2012 at 13:07
Great photo John,I've seen a few nuthatches in my friends garden at Gathurst.Never seen any in my neck of the woods.


Comment by David Barker on 14th March 2012 at 14:05
Another cracker John good detail,plenty nuthatches at the hide in Haigh Hall Plantations ,I agree with Bren,regarding Ernest comment.
Its a wildlife photo,we live in Wigan were surrounded with wildlife,at Pennington Flash ,Haigh Hall ,Scotsmans Flash,Orrell Water Park,Worthing Lakes,even your back garden need I go on.


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 14th March 2012 at 22:45
David Barker, I think Bren is referring to Maggie`s comment about me. Bren will you confirm?


Comment by Andrew Fishburn on 14th March 2012 at 22:55
Great photo, John. It isn't a bird that i have seen in the flesh before.

I wonder if you do any post capture processing with your shots? I suspect you could lift the Levels to give it additional vibrancy, and a bit of sharpening on the feathers.


Comment by john on 15th March 2012 at 08:11
andrew , no idont use anything ,what you see is what you get , i tend to take around thirty or so shots, then pick out the best .


Comment by Al. C. on 15th March 2012 at 10:20
Great picture John, Ernest, humans aren't the only things living in Wigan, go round town on Friday or Saturday night and you will see what I mean!


Comment by Bren on 15th March 2012 at 10:23
Confirmed Ernest ! no need for smut !!


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 15th March 2012 at 15:38
Thanks Bren. How about an apology David Barker?


Comment by David Barker on 15th March 2012 at 22:29
I apologise Ernest,I thought Bren was referring to your 1st comment,but the there's no reason this photo of Johns shouldn't be on here as I said in my comment.


Comment by Mrs G on 16th March 2012 at 16:52
I had never seen a nuthatch until we moved to Shevington. These birds are more common than sparrows in our garden. Beautiful little birds.
