Great Spotted Woodpecker and other garden birds

(Entry copied from WAB blog)

Unfortunately I have been ill again, possibly a recurrence of the virus I had about a month ago. I’m more or less OK now (at least I can eat properly again!), but I’m still feeling weak and tired. So I’ve not been out anywhere for over a week.

Great Spotted Woodpecker

Today I spent a couple of hours or so bird watching from my ‘hide’ in the summerhouse in the back garden. I got an all too fleeting glimpse of a Brambling, and got my best yet photo of a Great Spotted Woodpecker (it was on a tree rather than a feeder, making it a more natural scene). I also got my best yet photo of a Collared Dove, sitting on the garden fence. The other birds I saw today were Pheasant, Blackbird, Dunnock, Robin, Starling, Great Tit, Blue Tit, Greenfinch, Chaffinch, Wood Pigeon, Wren and Jackdaw.
