but are less appreciative when it tries to drill into a tit nest box.

But we can’t but be sorry to find one woodpecker dead on the ground – sparrow hawk presumably but must have been disturbed.

together with a window-strike siskin. Will probably be taken by magpies – ironically our most heated predator (not counting the wild cat)

More cheerfully today…
