Creeping around trees

I love the song of the Short toed Treecreeper, so different from our own Eurasian Treecreeper; still high pitched, but more fluty. Not difficult to find in France last week, we saw plenty. Readily distinguishable when not singing even at a distance by the white tips to the flight feathers forming a horseshoe on the back of the bird. A closer look also reveals the stepped markings on the wing are nice and even unlike the Eurasian which are very uneven.
