Update on Woodpecker Nest

A few blog posts back here I talked about a nest hole that we'd seen that we thought probably belonged to a greater spotted woodpecker.

Over the past few days, we've heard the chicks making lots of noise in the hole.

Today Crafty Green Boyfriend was able to catch the female as she came in to feed the youngsters

and with a good zoom lense on his camera he was able to see inside - can you see the face of the young woodpecker? Click on the photo to make it bigger!

Oh, CGP, what a beautiful thing to watch. We have just been enjoying a mother Blue tit who has been feeding two chicks from our coconut feeder.

Woodpeckers are such neat birds. My love for them probably goes back to "Woody Woodpecker" cartoons.
