The nuthatch is a plump bird about the size of a great tit that resembles a small woodpecker. It is blue-grey above and whitish below, with chestnut on its sides and under its tail. It has a black stripe on its head, a long black pointed bill and short legs. It breeds throughout England and Wales and has recently began to breed in southern Scotland. It is a resident, with birds seldom travelling far from the woods where they hatch. Nuthatches are best looked for in mature woods and established parkland throughout England and Wales, on the sides of tree trunks and underside of branches. There are occasional sightings of them in southern Scotland.
