Treecreeper

The Treecreeper is resident in woods, parks, and gardens throughout Britain, in quite large numbers, but can be hard to find.

It certainly lives up to its name, by creeping up tree trunks and along branches, but unlike the Nuthatch, it does not climb down trunks.

Doesn’t regularly visit bird tables but may take crushed peanuts or suet, squashed into the crevices of tree bark. Has also been known to take peanuts from a feeder or fat from a hanging container in winter but its main diet is the insects and spiders it’s searching for on the trunks of trees.

A very active bird, it may join flocks of tits and other small birds during the autumn and winter months.

Nests usually in cavities behind loose bark or tree trunks, but may build a nest out of twigs, moss, grass, and feathers, in building or wall crevices.
