Our woodpecker - at last

Well this is the best I could do - the woodpeckers (there are 2 of them it turns out) are rather shy and the merest zoom of a lens send them flying back down the valley to the wood.

Here he is caught pecking at the monkey nuts hanging from one of our plant supports in the border.

These nut rings have been brilliant - they last for ages as the birds have to work to get their food.

How fantastic to have woodpeckers.
Nuts only bring squirrels into the garden and although cute Harry gets hysterical when he sees them.

I do love woodpeckers. We seem to have quite a few here, though I am never able to capture them on camera.
