This year's young woodpeckers arrived in the garden at the end of last week but I have been frustrated in my attempts at photographing them being fed. Until this morning, that is, when I finally got lucky.
It is just over two years since I started this blog. My very first post was on great spotted woodpeckers feeding their young. Since then there have been over 400 posts and over 40,000 page views but this remains one of my favourite photographic subjects. It is interesting that I managed the first photo on 14th June in 2014 and 18th June 2015 so it is perhaps a measure of the lateness of the season after a long cold spring this year.
