Nuthatch (Sitta europaea)
A woodland bird mainly, but is seen on quite a few bird feeders in stockport. Looks like a small woodpecker and can hang upside down on a branch. This one was taken by Steven Kelly at Etherow Country Park.
Great Spotted Woodpecker Male The red marking on the back of the neck or head is the way to tell the male apart from the female. Again this wonderful capture was provided by Michael Anthony Brathwaite at Abney Hall.
Great Tit (Parus major) Seen many of these lovely colourful busy little birds around our parks and gardens in stockport. They are the biggest of the tit family and a joy to watch.
Robin (Erithacus rubecula)
Probably one of the most photographed birds in Stockport. The robin is quite territorial and I have seen many a squabble in the garden on the feeders. This was taken in my garden.
Goldcrest (Regulus regulus)
Stockport's smallest reported bird is the lovely little Goldcrest, very cute and an absolute joy to watch. They are very fast and sometimes hard to capture. However, thanks goes to our Abney Park regular, Michael Anthony Brathwaite for this wonderful capture.
