I’m your host at Folly View – the cleanest and best value self-catering accommodation in South Shropshire


Nuthatchs are a distinctive bird which we often see at Folly View,  particularly over the winter months.

They are recognised by their blue-grey back and wings, Amber under parts with a striking black eye strip and bill.

Nuthatch rarely travel far from where they hatched. They nest in tree cavities and prefer areas with mature oaks.

They can often be spotted heading down tree trunks looking for insects or nuts that they have stored for eating later in gaps in the bark.

Why, this brief look at the nuthatch?

While I was planting onion sets one was heading down the side of the house looking for insects.

The photograph of a Nuthatch in the header of this blog post was taken by Skylar Ewing.
