Nuthatch

Since moving to mytholmroyd I have noticed there is a lot of nuthatch in the area. Today I counted 7 in various parts Of the area 2 brearley by the canal 2 redacre wood 1 broadhead clough 1 Stubbs (singing) 1 near the nest estate Very nice to see so many in the area they are doing very well. Not that long ago I think todmorden was the only place to see them.

Centre Vale Park in Todmorden was a very good place in Calderdale. I first had them there in 1985. Then as far as I can recall High Royd was one of the first recorded nesting sites - in an old oak tree by the bridge over the canal. Not sure what year that was though?
