This is the first time a Nuthatch has visited the garden bird feeders, fortunately it stayed feeding long enough for me to grab my camera. The pictures were taken through the dining room window with the flash turned off.
The UK Nuthatch is a woodland bird, always associated with trees or tall bushes. It has the unique habit in the UK of plastering mud around the entrance to its nest hole.
Have you seen any new visitors?

Great pictures Brian, we also have had a nuthatch fir the first time in our garden. Not sure if there is any significance in this.
Hope you are both well
Good thanks, Lewis.
Great photographs! I am not so good at identifying birds but I like the Nuthatch because it is the only bird I know that takes that upside down posture! It is always such a thrill when you see a new bird in the garden. It is Kourosh who takes the bird photographs and looks after their feeding. I just leave it to him and enjoy watching them. Amelia
They are a joy to watch.

They are such charming birds. They gather the nuts and hide a cache for leaner times, one of their favourite place is heavily grooved bark in trees. Thank you for sharing.
Thank you, Noelle.
My sister had a jay on her feeders, We’ve noticed a distinct lack of acorns this year. I wonder if this is significant?
Good photos Brian. You must have been quick off the mark.
Grease lighting Anne!!!
