Sunday and the start of a new month didn't bring a great improvement in the weather with a cool and cloudy day which threatened rain all day although it never actually arrived.
We very rarely see a Woodpecker in the garden but today was one of those days.
We think that this is a juvenile Great Spotted Woodpecker. It was making valiant attempts to get at the fat balls with limited success.
I’d only just replaced the outer cover to the feeder as we’ve a couple of starling families who go through half a dozen fat balls in no time at all. The outer cover doesn’t stop them but it does slow their feasting down a little. I’m hoping that it hasn’t put our woodpecker off making more visits.
The pictures above are images grabbed from my video camera and the full length film is included below.
