Successful winter breeding record of the European Nuthatch Sitta europaea in Schaffhausen (Switzerland). From 22 January 2006 onwards, European Nuthatches were seen feeding at a nest box in the town of Schaffhausen at 450 m a.s.l. On 25 January 3 or 4 young fledged already and were seen together with the adults outside the nest box, while 1 or 2 young were still begging inside the nest box and fed by at least one adult. The next day just one adult was seen in the surroundings of the nest box. Egg laying of this brood took place around 10 December 2005. This is the earliest documented breeding record of the European Nuthatch in Central Europe, remarkably in a winter with temperatures below the long-term mean.
