New Bird in Garden.
I've seen this tiny bird (about as big as a nuthatch), going up tree trunks twice this week and by the time I got the camera it was gone. This afternoon coming back from filling one of the feeders there it was again going up a trunk looking for insects. Yelled for himself to get my camera as I didn't want to waste time taking my boots off, turned around and it was gone again. Only one thing for it....stand and wait!
I was in luck...he even left the tree trunk and got on the snow, then off again. Not the best shots but hey it's a first!!
