Nuthatch - Washington Wetland Centre
The woodland hide at Washington was burnt down by vandals recently, but the centre's handyman has built a new hide in record time, and this one has no glass in the windows - perfect for photography! The hide faces to the south, so you do have to use flash to show any detail in the birds. Fortunately the flash does not appear to trouble the birds at all.
Photo taken using a Canon 5D camera, Sigma 100-300 f4 lens, and an ancient Vivitar flashgun.
