Nice Pecks

Warm sunny weather then blizzards and the cold! What a week. Managed to successfully twitch the Osprey at Pennington Flash on Wednesday, though no photos due to its distance. Also on the Flash 2 Med Gulls and a House Martin amongst the Swallows and Sand Martins. A couple of trips to Dunham Massey afforded better views of the Green Woodpeckers and a different female Lesser-spotted Woodpecker.

Managed to pop into Moore NR on the way home from ringing Grey Heron chicks today and (like everybody else) had great views of the resident male Lesser-spotted Woodpecker, not photographed him for a couple of years so was nice to get some new images.
