#84 An encounter with bandits

I had a couple of meetings at the Kingcombe Centre this morning. It was such a beautiful sunny morning as I left for work, I decided to take my camera gear and opt for a lunchtime wander on the nature reserve.

By lunchtime, dark clouds had gathered overhead and it looked like rain was imminent. Not to be put off, I headed for the river to see if anything was out and approachable.  A high pitched peeping sound in the trees revealed a pair of Nuthatch – obviously very interested in an old woodpecker hole.  I took a couple of pics before retreating, and left them to explore – just as the rain started to fall…

One of the Nuthatch pair. The black mask across the eyes is the reason they are also called Bandits.
