Woody returns.... 1st appearance this year

Post by Bosscat » Mon Mar 30, 2020 12:26 pm

The local Woodpecker has returned to the nut feeders this morning.... 1st visit this year we are aware of.

Couldn't get a picture (he/she is extremely camera shy and the slightest movement frightens him/her) so this is one I managed last year.

Woodpecker pictured is a male. Red marking on the head that females don't have.

I'm quite surprised nobody has asked if it's offside :)
