Tree-creeper bathing

To my surprise I saw this morning a bird...
I wondered what...who is this?
Could not determine the specie at first glance.
Second glance...
A Tree-creeper! (Boomkruiper)

Bathing...never saw him bathing...
Sometimes, I see him creeping up a tree,
flying down again... & creeping up, while seeking little insects on the way.
He has eautiful curved bill... lovely bright eyes.

Here he was...splashing in the well of my pond...!

I've never heard of a tree creeper before. What a beautiful little fellow! He looks like he's enjoying himself!
