Nuthatch Sitta europaea: now these are the real owner of the bird table. We have had a bird table outside the dining room window since 1991 and everyday that food is put out, a pair of nuthatches work the table till all the food is gone. They suffer no other birds (except perhaps a Robin) whilst they are on the table. Always the two there is, a male and a female, never more, never less to paraphrase Master Yoda. In late June, my notes tell me, we have had adults and three stumpy tailed young on the table. I do not know the life span of an individual in the wild, but it is obviously a stable breeding territory that occupies the garden and individuals pass temporally through the territory.
