Treecreeper with an unusual roost
One local bird has taken advantage of the giant redwood trees planted in the gardens at Gregynog Hall in Powys.
The bark is thick and soft so ideal for roosting in if you're a tree creeper but to see it you'll have to take a torch and return after dark.
The treecreeper digs a shallow hole for itself into the bark which provides excellent insulation on cold winter nights.
All that sticks out from the tree are the bird's dense back feathers which blend in perfectly with the surrounding bark - keeping it safe from any passing owls.
