Tree Creeper..
« on: November 23, 2010, 09:57:54 am »
I took pix. of this wee bird while on holiday, two pix. were taken at RSPB Lochwinnoch and two were taken at Taynuilt Argyll.. very hard to spot them, you need a bit of luck and patience, they blend in so well in the foliage, the one in Argyll landed on a tree right next to me, they climb upwards unlike the Nuthatch, they climb downwards..

RSPB Lochwinnoch..









Argyll..



And a video from the BBC you might find interesting about the tree creeper..

I've only ever seen one George - it was at Lake Vyrnwy when I went to the RSPB place there! It reminded me of a little brown mouse.

They are so hard to spot Lynne.. The last one wiz taken at Angus gardens Taynuilt last summer, it landed on the tree next to me, still difficult to get a photo, as, they don't hang around..

In the birding world it is often referred to as a "Tree Mouse" Benjiesmum. :)
