A Nuthatch!

June/July is the rainy season in the north of Scotland and this year we had to take avoiding action more often than usual by driving on to the next glen or loch whenever the rain approached. It was not a good year for birds either, the list of what we didn't see being longer than those we did.

Nuthatch (RSPB)
So imagine our joy and surprise when a Nuthatch landed on our feeder the day after our return home! He's now a regular visitor and we see him almost every day.
This is the best I could do with my compact camera and Photoshop

Our garden backs onto the park, so he's probably nesting somewhere in the park.
