Photo-a-Day (Saturday, 12th December, 2020)
Almost ready to go...
That’s a cracking photo Anne.
Absolutely beautiful, Anne.
Lovely photo, lovely camera.
Nuthatch, beaopmutiful ! You are extremely lucky Anne to get such a fantastic photo, well done. Don't see many of these .
That is so beautiful Anne what a lovely photo, lovely little bird.
Ive never ever seen a Nuthatch around Wigan, but I see them regularly at Birkacre lodge in Chorley.
BTW is this photo from Fox Fur Anne or the reject Anne who pops over to Pads to cause trouble
That is absolutely beautiful. He obviously senses that he is in safe and loving hands.
That little bird knows it's Fox Fur Anne ! He's quite at home there... He's thinking of staying put, he's warm and comfortable . Awwww!
That's right Mick . There's one ' supermodel ' at Birkacre that does photo calls on a tree stump all day long. I've never been there and not seen it ! There's some at 3 Sisters too. Nice picture .
Lovely photo. Can't believe Mick has never seen one around Wigan. We live in Shevington and have one of the stick on window feeders, nuthatches are flying in every minute at various times of day to feed.
We have them on the feeders in our garden. Was the bird injured Anne ?
We live near Wigan Infirmary and last year, one was coming every day for months, feeding upside down as they do on the bird nuts. This year only seen one twice, but much later, just a couple of weeks ago. Fascinating to watch it feed.
we live in shevington and we have regular visits to our feeders,he constantly takes suet and nuts and hides them in any nook and cranny he can find.
Theyve been nesting in the plants at least thirty years.
WN1...yes he/she had an accident of some sort. Much activity at twilight round the feeders. There are two regular nuthatches visiting. I noticed this one flat out so picked it up and could feel it's little heart beating. Cuddled it for half an hour, felt it wriggling but it wasn't quite ready, another ten minutes cuddle and off. It wasn't quite as dark as is suggested in the picture. A regular thing, some of them not as fortunate.
Lovely photo Anne, you were very lucky there. He/ She may be back sometime for another cuddle!!!
Anne, had the bird flew into your window?
