What a welcome to August! Our local woodpecker family has done it again with at least two youngsters. They were first seen on 1st August.
We like to record wildlife at Market Lavington Museum and these fellows were seen in a Northbrook garden.
They are much spottier than their parents who, it must be said, look a bit careworn after all of their child rearing exertions.
Here’s number two.
They have learned how to hunt for ants.
It looks as though the green woodpeckers locally are secure for this year.
