I've Got Wood!!
Went a searchin' for the Green Woodpecker reported at Big Waters this afternoon. Fellow birder, Davy Tee mentioned it on Birdforum and so with directions via a PM from him, off I went. And within a few minutes of getting out the car, voila, Picus viridis herself!
What an obliging, engaging, stunning and impactive specimen of ornithological excellence. The typically pathetic snaps do not do her justice - where's Jack Bucknall (now 14, I see) when you need him?
