The Treecreeper

Treecreeper (Certhia familiaris) at Chidswell Heybeck 2021

The treecreeper lives in trees.

Dum and Dogloitch ancient woodlands provide a home, insects, spiders and seeds for this small, very active bird.

A member of the Treecreeper family, treecreepers have a long, slender, downcurved bill and can be seen literally creeping up trees, never still, constantly moving up the tree-trunk or branches, then flying down, often spiralling.

Treecreepers don’t travel far and need woods that are suitable for them.

No woods, no treecreepers!

Treecreepers are here!

Let’s keep a home for the Treecreeper here!
