I went to my "caravan hide" late morning today to fill up the feeders. I sat for a while to see what I could hear and see. It was nice to hear a Green Woodpecker which I always hope to see on the grass around the drinking pool...... it's happened just once before. It is good to know that they are in the wood somewhere. As well as that I could hear a Treecreeper calling almost constantly and a Nuthatch. Four different species of tit came to the feed, interestingly a Long-tail which is only the second I have seen here. I will be spending a few sessions there in the coming days.
When I came home I looked through the photos taken yesterday and found this nice one that I hadn't seen yesterday. Why travel to exotic places all around the world when birds as brightly coloured and beautiful as his are flying around! Somehow the cloudy, almost white background adds to the effect.
