Tree Creeper Certhia familiaris Scottish Borders

I haven’t seen the tree creeper for some time, and thought it must have come to grief at the hands of a predator. So, I was quite surprised to see it in my garden this afternoon.

I grabbed my camera and the 500mm lens and spent a little time getting some images of this attractive little bird. They are not particularly easy to get pictures of as they keep moving and rarely rest up, but with a little perseverance you can get some good results.

Here are a few of the images from the session.

I am a full time wildlife photographer living in the Scottish Borders. I do most of my photography in Scotland in the Highlands and Islands as well as the Scottish Borders. I also travel to Northern Scandinavia, North America, Canada and South Africa to photograph birds and mammals. I organize workshops and deliver illustrated talks on birds and wildlife. My work has been featured in many magazines and publication and I have written just one book so far entitled “Wildlife through my Viewfinder” which is a collection of photographs and the stories behind them. I hope you enjoy this blog and website. I will try to update it as often as possible.
