Nuthatch (sitta europeae)

Birds of Burrator Reservoir

I adore photographing wildlife, although it is a very different technique to my usual landscape microadventure photography I never passup the opportunity to photography wildlife, this weekend I was lucky enough to be able to photograph 4 species of native British Birds including Britain’s National bird the Robin (pictured below).

Like all good photography this was by no means by chance, a couple of weekends ago I wrote a blogpost entitled Norsworthy Bridge and Down Tor circle Dartmoor Microadventure where I posted a photograph of the first nuthatch I had ever seen, in fact there were in fact a pair of them. Last Friday I decided to return to the exact with the specific aim of photographing the pair.

Whilst I was there I discovered that the location was also ideal to capture a range of slightly more common ‘gardens birds’ including multiple species of tits.
