How to buy

The UK Nuthatch is very similar to the several species I am familiar with from the US. They are sleek, agile, and dart-like in build. Seeing them flitting in and out from the bird feeder at my partner’s mum’s house in Tewkesbury, and effortless scaling vertical surfaces in their quintessentially “nuthatch way,” gave me a bit of nostalgia during my travels.

I observed this particular bird amidst shrubbery and reed plants by a stream edge. Using the strong diagonals of the reeds, I hoped to emphasize the sharpness and angularity of the bird, as well as its brisk, arrow-like movements.
