Today we had a Treecreeper visit our garden, the first we have seen in several years. Treecreepers creep up trees using their claws to grip and their stiff tails to brace themselves. The curved and pointed beak probes for insects and spiders in the fissured tree bark. Their camouflage is excellent, expecially on Silver birch trees which seem to be favourites in our garden.
Confident in its camouflage, a Treecreeper is not particularly nervous of the photographer's approach. But it doesn't sit still for a second. In burst mode I took maybe 50 photos to get a few that were fairly free of motion.
