Nuthatch at last!!

Nuthatches have been a bit of a nemesis, I've managed a few decent shots over the years, but never had a good session with plenty of opportunities. This weekend we had a nice walk around Marbury Country Park, in the woodland they have a woodland hide with feeders there. I had only sat down a few minutes and nuthatches were coming in quite regularly, too close for the big lens, so the 300mm F4 came into action. The light was really poor and most of these were taken with the D800 at ISO 4000, I am getting more and more impressed with this body.
There were also Jays and Great Spotted Woodpeckers about but didn't come in close enough, and also a Goldcrest that I was told about never appeared, but will be returning soon for sure.














  1. Well done Gary, you overcame your nemesis at last and captured a super set of images. Not the easiest of birds to photograph, they don't hang about for long!...[;o)

  2. Nice one Gary, always good to get a species that has done its best to evade you! Like the Dipper on your last post mate :-) PS only just found your blog!

  3. Great close ups of the nuthatch Gary,glad were both blogging again.
