........The answer. They have all been seen more times at Fairburn than our most recent visitor. With only two previous authenticated records, despite the fact that they breed within a mile or two of the reserve, this Nuthatch that is making regular visits to the wildlife garden feeders has proved a long-awaited addition to many a Fairburn list!!
