A pleasure to share.

Had a surprising early morning visitor to our bird feeder. A great spotted woodpecker no less - and for the first time ever.

At a glance I thought it was just another pesky Magpie but no, just a lovely flash of colour for a change. Thumbs Up

PS. Not my photograph by the way, I'm not that quick at my age!

No woodpeckers spotted in our suburban garden yet, but success this year with a nesting box for robins. Smiley

I put up the box three years ago, but hadn't researched about the best place for it. Roll eyes

Don't know whether this is mum or dad.

We had a Wren nesting in ours a couple of years ago but this year a tree sparrow has moved in!

PS. This might be of interest.

A few years ago we had a couple of Peacocks strutting around our garden, the novelty soon wore off after the mess they made.

I assume they must have escaped from some posh house in the area.... never seen them again.

And loud I imagine as they can kick up a heck of racket - one of my daughter's landlord had a couple of 'em.

Noisy but nice. Wink

Thanks, it was. Smiley

At our previous rural property our neighbours had guinea fowl. They made the pheasants seem intelligent! Seemingly determined to get under the wheels of a moving car.

At dusk they'd roost in the trees, then loudly announce their presence to any near, and not so near, predators.
