Today I had a visit from a GS Woodpecker :) . It was on the fatball feeder. to the best of my knowledge that is the first time for about three years. :banana:
That's a cause for celebration I think :rara: , they are such cool birds to have around :D . I am really lucky to have a couple of them coming to my feeders :nod: . They seem to like hanging fatball/suet feeders :yes:

I have a male and female GSW that come in and on one occasion both together. Not had any chick yet but I keep hoping. They like the peanuts and fatballs. They tend to come in and out for about a fortnight and then disappear for a while. Last visit was last week and they haven't been in since.

A trio of two`s. Standing on my front door step, a pied wagtail was on the path on top of the steps. Threw it a couple of mealworms. Other pied wagtail appears from behind a car. Threw it some mealworms. Then two dunnocks turn up in the carpark. Then a robin appears on top of the steps and that one was joined by another.

The old saying "feed them and they will come" proven I think. Well done Willpar. :yes:

A male Blackcap. I spotted him flitting around in the now leafless Rowan. His task was to get at the few remaining berries. Starlings and Blackbirds eat most of the berries but they can't get at the ones on the flimsy outer branches. Being a good deal lighter these berries were now problem for him. :nod:

Good one jacksparrow. Not had any here for a few winters now.

But this morning a robin was having breakfast with the pied wagtails. It dashed out from under a car.

Not see one for a few winters, but have had a visit from a blackcap. Think it may have been a male.
