Nuthatch, Tree Creeper and Goldcrest songs

The song of the Nuthatch is a simple series of repeated notes.

Three examples (Apr, Herts).
































The song can be a trill.

This bird in a small tree with another appeared excited, although I couldn't determine why. The notes came in a continuous series (Apr, Norfolk).
