While walking in the woods the other day I started to see holes that I had not noticed before. They were always 4 metres or higher in the tree trunks. The one I have shown here is fresher looking than most of them - the 'pecked at' wood becomes darker over the year(s). I suddenly realised we must have quite a few woodpeckers in Finings Wood. I had never heard them before - have you?
I am now paying much more attention to birds and learning to recognise them very slowly. I was amazed to have a friend point out a sparrow hawk at the Lacey's end of the wood. Is that normal?
I would love to hear what you all see or hear when you go on your walks. I can then look out for them too! Jill Ayres - Facebook post
