Good shot, now I'm an expert on tits. It is a blue tit. What does any one else think.

Lovely Nuthatch

Comment by: Carolean on 10th October 2016 at 08:36

Nuthatch. They are fairly common where I now live in Somerset, but I dont remember seeing one in Wigan.

Comment by: Helen B on 10th October 2016 at 08:50

Looks like a nuthatch to me.

Comment by: Kath H on 10th October 2016 at 09:34

Corlean. It is definitely a Nuthatch. We live just outside the town centre, and one comes here every year. It was here for 3 or 4 days a couple of weeks ago, and feeds on the nuts.

Lovely to see a little bird for a change! Must have to be quick to snap the bird before it swallows it's 'breckies'! Great picture.
