One of this years great spotted woodpecker chicks enjoying the view.
Managed to get the first sight of this years punk pirates as they aggressively almost attack the parents when they bring in food. The feeding is relentless and the parent birds are starting to look a little worse for wear. Any day now the chicks will be peering out at the world.
The great spotted woodpeckers eggs have hatched and the feeding duties have begun. The parents are in and out every few minutes which can lead to some traffic backing up. When each parent lands on the tree they let out a call to notify the other that they need to get in and then they wait for the other to emerge.
