My Photographs from the North West of England and sometimes further afield.
Let me know when that tide's coming in won't you

These little guys are fantastic birds to watch. They scurry up trees, and then do a sort of parachuting to another tree and start their probing all over again. The curved beak gets into the crevices in the bark where they look for insects. The plumage is fantastic camouflage against the trees. They rarely stop still, so it's always tricky getting a shot of them.
This guy is collecting food for some young it had in a nest nearby.
You can see the claws they have to help cling to the trees.
