A nuthatch in Berlin

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I took this photo on Sunday morning in the grounds of Charlottenburg Palace in Berlin. This was the first time I had seen a nuthatch, so I only found out what it was after consulting a bird book after I got home.

Nuthatches are woodland birds that – not surprisingly – feed largely on nuts and acorns. This one was digging away at the soft wood of a rotten branch, fortunately oblivious to me only a few feet away.

What do you think?

    • I do enjoy birdwatching and also writing about them – I have a blog consisting of “bird” articles.

      I had hoped that when visiting Germany I might see a few birds that I had not seen before, and that turned out to be the case. Nuthatches are found in the UK, but I have not been lucky enough to see one.

      While walking round the same park I also saw two squirrels that were not the same as those found in most of the UK. It was an interesting morning!
