Rock nuthatch

These were taken in the Potamia valley although we saw the nuthatches in all the rocky areas of the island, we came across one family group with quite a few large and noisy youngsters in attendance. The pair in the pictures had a nest right beside a track and we were able to park and use the car as a hide and the male completely ignored us as we watched, going about feeding the youngsters in the nest and singing from the top of the rock under which they had 'built' their adobe type dwelling.
