Treecreeper and Nuthatch at Ickworth


We visited Ickworth last weekend to see the snowdrops (pictures still to come). While we were there, we saw two 'firsts' for 2015 ... a Treecreeper and a Nuthatch. Both these shy birds were high up in the branches, so apologies for the record-shot quality of my 'winter light' photos! 


Above and below: the Treecreeper



The photos below show the Nuthatch ...




Feeding time!

My total number of bird species recorded to date for 2015 is now 37.

lovely to see these two birds, I like the light in the photos of the nuthatch, bringing its colours out....

Well done on the nuthatch and tree creeper year sightings - not see either species here yet this year. You did well to get photos of these species especially with the low light!

Pretty birds, I love the Creeper and the nuthatch! Have a great week!

Thanks for the bird photos!! Nuthatchers are a favorite. In Kentucky we have two kinds, the White-breasted and the Red-Breasted, which only stays during the winter. We have had several of both show up in our yard :)

Thank you, everyone, for your kind comments. Juliet Carol - what a wonderful cedar on your site, and those incredible chests! I wasn't able to leave a comment there, but I loved the post!
