Nuthatches are most commonly found in mature woodlands. This smaller bird is a resident of the UK and seldom travels far from the woods where they hatch. They eat nuts, seeds and insects, and they have a rather curious habit of plastering the outside of their nests with mud. They are the only bird agile enough to climb headfirst down tree trunks, often spotting insects hidden in the bark which other birds might have missed. We have two of these beautiful birds visiting our feeding table, they fly back and forth from the hedgerow for sunflower seeds.
