The Treecreeper (Certhia familiaris)
The third in the series of five quality species that I was able to photograph on the same day as the Stonechat in the Parkland.
Taking reasonable images of a Treecreeper is mostly about being in the right place at the right time.
That certainly doesn't happen with me very often, but when I was taking images of other birds, this little bird below flew on to a tree trunk within range of the camera.
I thought at first I wasn't going to be lucky, as I caught sight of it flying in and landing on the other side of the trunk. I then had to wait for a few moments to see it emerging around the trunk and into view. It then kindly walked up the trunk in full view.
I took around thirty images and then it was gone.
