Nuthatch collecting moss for the nest from an old tree trunk.Derbyshire, Peak District National Park. Nuthatches are one of our most distinctive native birds, found almost exclusively in woodland. I followed a pair as they collected the moss from the gnarled old trees to build their nest.
About The Nuthatch:
“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 throughout England and Wales and has recently began to breed in southern Scotland. It is a resident, with birds seldom travelling far from the woods where they hatch.”
