I had a rare day off work that also entailed some time to myself. So I took the opportunity to take the binoculars and the camera to my local patch. Not much was around so I ventured a few miles down the road to Bramhall, The woods were alive with the sound of birds marking territory and suddenly Spring is upon us.
This Nuthatch was very vocal. Either it wasn't keen on me being there or there was another bird in the vicinity. Either way he put on a good show. Unfortunately it was a little dark due to the cloud cover, so some of the shots are a little grainy and I forgot my monopod, so these are handheld.
There were plenty of squirrels scurrying around. This little guy was having a light snack.
