Sunday morning visitor
We were lucky enough to get another of our occasional visits from a lesser spotted woodpecker this morning; I got a good close look as I keep my bins on the draining board - the feeders are on the snake bark maple just outside the kitchen window, so I got a good look this morning.
What a lovely creature, I'm honoured when he comes into the garden. Hoping to see the babies next year too, as they nest not far away from here I'm told.
I don't lay claim to the photo, it's from the Guardian website. I'd rather spend the fleeting moments watching than trying to find my camera and take a photo.
Made me laugh with my typos, though; it first appeared as a Lesser Spooted Wodpecker...........no doubt it will forever be known thus in the Deanery! lol
Anyone else get woodpeckers as visitors?
