Bird Guide: Nuthatch

These birds can be identified by their peachy coloured breast and bluey/grey back. Unlike most other species, it is not uncommon to see these birds climbing down tree trunks head first. They reside in England and Wales but have recently began to breed in Southern Scotland. They tend to live in the woods and live off insects and seeds.
