On one of my morning walks this week, I was lucky to spot two Nuthatch. The first caught my eye as it perched on top of an old stone bridge. Then its mate appeared, just below, clinging upside-down onto the wall of the bridge. They both flew off into a nearby tree together.
This was a good sighting because it was only last September that I saw one in the garden for the first time in 17 years I’ve lived in central Scotland. It looks like the population is doing well and spreading northwards.
