These past weeks we have had the Great Spotted Woodpecker on the peanut feeder!

An awful photo due to haste and filthy windows!! Lol!! I really must clean them!!

What they eat…

They love insects often found in standing dead wood and their drilling into trees can be heard all over here! But they also are rather partial to peanuts!

What they sound like…

My favourite website again for their calls!!

We have heard the drumming on the trees a lot here but this is the first time we have seen them on our feeders!

There are lots of Birdy bits over in the shop, like our birdwatching pack and our bird food recipe book!! And we have a specific birdwatching post with free activities to get you started!
