White not only notes the homes and ways, the times and seasons, of plants and animals - comparing, for instance, the different ways in which the squirrel, the fieldmouse and the nuthatch eat their hazel-nuts - or watches the migrations of birds, which were then only beginning to be properly recorded or understood, but he knows more than any other observer until Charles Darwin about the habits and the usefulness of the earthworms, and is certain that plants distil dew and do not merely condense it.
We set off along the picturesquely named Devils Gorge, having already seen nuthatch on the feeders by the visitor center.
Eurasian nuthatch: Several noted at San Juan de la PeÃ±a on 1st.
nuthatch cottage is all we hoped it would be- a home from home. we have had a lovely relaxing time.
