Lovely to see this guy just outside my kitchen window again. He has visited the food board on numerous occasions over the last couple of days and actually, there are two of them. Perfectly content mingling with the sparrows, tits and young family of bullfinches. Yesterday was the best 'bird lunchtime' I've witnessed.
The nuthatch pair are neither shy, nor anxious to avoid the camera. This photo is one of many, but I did observe that they seem to live in an old tall Ash over the road. It's in the grounds of a school, but many of the trees in the area are Victorian. I'm guessing that's why they they are living in the middle of a city!!!
Just to add to Robbo's reply, nuthatches can be of a very cheeky nature and more gregarious than other species.
Like robins, they will if they feel it is safe to do so, come close and feed. The photo in the link is one from my early birding days.
