Thank you Silverhead!

Have been informed from my MIL that a parcel had arrived Linked Image
Can only be yours, Silverhead! So many many thanks for that!

Today's catch: the green woodpecker

I feel like I need a new camera.... but I haven't ever seen him here before and therefore wanted to share the picture

Well done you! My woodpecker just will not come out from the wrong side of the feeders to have it's photograph taken. Best I've managed is a shot of its tail. Do they think I put seed out just for the fun of it? Laughing Both my neighbour and I have tried unsuccessfully for weeks to 'shoot' the little bligher!

Camilla's Avatar It is always exciting to receive a parcel, lucky you.

I have not heard the Woodpecker this year, but lots of Blackbirds in the garden at the moment, and I saw a white owl flying over the fields yesterday.

Frances's Avatar I love that picture, and thanks for the little sign post. Helped me spot that woodpecker! Which part of the bird is green? Please forgive my ignorance.

Bayou's Avatar all his body is bright green and on the head he has a very vivid red spot. He was hacking in the ground - I read that they like ants - yippeeehhh, I did not know we had a predator for b..y ants (oh god, I wrote aunts Embarassed) That's why he has a very long tongue.

Frances's Avatar Bayou, thank you for the details on this beautiful bird.

The ants had better watch out!
