[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
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. It has a black stripe on its head, a long black pointed bill, and short legs. It breeds in central and southern England and in Wales, and is resident, with birds seldom travelling far from the woods where they hatch.

Hi Les,

This is a very natural pose for a nuthatch and I like it. Good sharpness and great pov. Well done.


Hi Les,

Great shot of this nuthatch with seed in beak. A little noise, but can't tell why without seeing your Exif data.


Hallo Les
This is a great image, and I like the balancing act you captured here very much. Add to that the seed the bird has in its mouth, the wonderful details you captured in the feathers and the beautiful sunlight and you surely have a great image here. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

A wonderfull pic of this very nervous bird. perfect position, true colours and good sharpness make your pic outstanding.

Without luck, such shots are not possible! Magnificent. Sometimes we wont have time to choose the b/g, but it is here for you, the way we all want, right? Amazing sharpness.
