Just come across this in a file today. One of those I'll probably be very lucky to get again! I have lots of birds from this year but this is one of my favourite birds.

While I'm here, have a HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone :)

Lovely shot Pat. A cracking little bird. I like the feather details and the catch light in the eye. It's a Nuthatch isn't it?

It most certainly is! I don't get them in the garden - I had to travel out for this one! Thankyou for the nice comments :)

Pat, what a beautiful capture of one of my favorite birds. We have them here too.
This one is a Red-breasted Nuthatch from my office window.

Pat, it's probably a female. The red on the males tends to be brighter.
