This female Green Woodpecker was one of the highlights of this morning's efforts.
I tails of woodpeckers are really quite amazing structures. Stiffer than a bishop in a brothel, the tail feathers are used as a prop when the bird is climbing a tree.
Lots of crests in the valley.
Also seen: Swallow 25+, Brambling (2+ heard), Siskins, Redpolls, Mipits, Peregrines (males and female together), and stuff.
Nice ringing session BB. In answer to your question, - I'm not a ringer, but I help out a ringer, who lives a few doors up from me. He has caught a few Pied wags, but as yet has had no controls from them.
