A Flash of Red - Wallcreeper by Jamie-MacArthur A Flash of Red - Wallcreeper by Jamie-MacArthur
very illusive but well worth the effort to find - it actually flies like a large butterfly

They are a European bird which live at high altitudes . This one I got in Northern Spain. There is also a sub-speces in Asia. They are carnivorous and use their long bill to get the insects out of wholes in the rocks and walls

Here is a better shot I think
