We had mother and child in the garden searching for ants last summer . So nice to see them up close .

bird, green woodpecker, nature, garden

I am a 53 year old ageing Hippy with a love of nature . A romantic at heart but sadly single. I used to be a decorator but since my father became ill I have given up my business to care for him full time . When I have time to myself I like nothing more than to get out into the woods or the countryside and capture the sights around me. I hope you enjoy seeing what I see. Thanks for viewing. Kind regards Mark.

    Very interesting Woodpecker as it spends much of its time feeding on ants on the ground and does not often ‘drum’ on trees like other woodpecker species. Congratulations on your feature Mark…Jules
