Nuthatch and some more Stars...

The Nuthatch has been visiting for about a week now, and today I've managed to get a shot of him... It's amazing what some bird feed, a rock, some camoflage netting and a camera can do isn't it..!

 

Some info from the RSPB if you care to read...

The nuthatch is a plump bird about the size of a great tit that resembles a small woodpecker. It is blue-grey above and whitish below, with chestnut on its sides and under its tail.
