This is another of those birds that seem to evade my camera lens for years, then turn up again and again. I had seen no treecreepers for several years, then one frosty but bright January morning I travelled to the 'Lowland' hide at Barnwell Country Park near Oundle. As well as visits from nuthatch, marsh tit, long-tailed tit and coal tit, this little treecreeper paid several visits to the logs in front of the hide, giving lots of opportunities for photography.
I was particularly pleased with this image: even lighting, soft bokeh and a sharp subject. The white of the feathers are not burnt-out but show sufficient detail, always a challenge on birds with a mixture of pale and dark plumage. To add to interest the bird is clinging to the underside of the log.
