Wildlife in my local patch

Great Spotted “Nutcracker”

At my friend Tom B’s house a great spotted woodpecker has shown some funny behaviour. It will grab a whole peanut from their bird feeder and put it in a crack in the post.  Then it will peck at it taking small bite-size pieces from its convenient spot. Apparently now the crack is getting bigger and bigger thanks to the woodpecker.  So I set up my trail cam to have a look. Here are the results and I’ve chosen this as my image of the week for this week:
