I was pleased to discover that the Nuthatch normally resident in the woodland that runs along the Northern edge of the Parkland where I walk, still resides there in small numbers.
I observed three together there in recent days.
I am able to gauge their presence as they frequently visit a tree stump in that woodland where people leave bird food out.
I have certainly observed them there now for quite a number of years.

Scenes from a frosty morning walk at the beginning of the week .
The outside air temperature registered on the car when I started out was '0' degrees celsius at 0915.
It didn't exceed '5' degrees celsius during the day.

Walking along a pathway lined on both sides by very high bushes, I could hear a certain bird song coming from the top of the tall bushes which I had not heard for a while.
This was coming from a small flock of Linnet (Carduelis cannabina).
As I moved closer they would fly off and perch again further along the pathway.
I was eventually able to shoot a few record images through the branches.
