A very exciting bird record has been made in Knapp last week and confirmed today. The bird is a Nuthatch, and until a few years ago they were only seen around the St Abbs area, but in recent years sighting have been made from further north. Nuthatch can be confused with Tree Creeper, but the Nuthatch is a more colourful bird and climbs down trees as well as up. The Tree Creeper is the other bird that climbs up trees, but it flys down to the base and starts again.
