Venus Pool - Green Peckers perform

A quick 8.30 onwards hour spent at VP was rewarded by the sight of an adult plus juvenile Green Woodpecker feeding adjacent to the main hide. As close as you will probably get to these guys!!

The alert, ever watchful adult keeping an eye on the inquisitive youngster - dried stems might just be a source of ants.....

A distant lone Dunlin was the only 'new' wader, at least a Common Sandpiper was within range.....

A large flock of Goldfinch (20+) were ever present but mobile - feasing on thistle seeds.

Lots of young birds too, including Tree Sparrow and Pied Wagtail.
