A nuthatch poked its head out of a nest box. I was quite surprised because it was using a nest box put up as low as about 1.5 meter in height. And then I realised that it maybe all right in the UK because there is none or very few dangerous snakes to invade their nest.
The sky was pure blue without a single cloud and it was reflected on the still surface of the mere.

I am still not sure if it was a 1st winter female Stonechat or a female whinchat. But since it had a white throat rather than orange one, I am thinking it might be a Stonechat.
