Nuthatch @ Inchgarth

TheTamshee: tempts the Nuthatch with some nourishing peanuts. The sideways glance before flying off is just the moment to fire the trigger and capture this typical nuthatch pose.

TheTamshee: spent some time observing this Tufted Duck at a local reservoir. This medium-sized diving duck is smaller than a mallard; with black on the head, neck and breast. It has a small crest and a yellow eye. In flight it shows an obvious white stripe across the back of the wing.
