First Treecreeper Sighting of 2017

Treecreeper (I took this photo some time ago)

I was thrilled to catch a glimpse of the little Treecreeper in the photo below on a recent visit to Christchurch Park. We had hoped to see Mabel the Tawny Owl, but she had gone AWOL; so this lovely little bird made up for her absence.

You can just make out the (2017) Treecreeper, with its long bill

I rather like the West Country nickname of Tree Mouse for this quiet but distinctive passerine.
