More surprise visitors
I'd just made some bird cake and put it out for the birds, so sat bask to see who was around in the garden. I was getting excited by the appearance of a Chaffinch as we don't see them very often, when a Great Spotted Woodpecker appeared on a tree next to the bird table. Whilst I was wrestling with the camera case, it flew down to the tree at the bottom of the garden. It was on the trunk on the side away from me, so I could see it's tail occasionally poking out, but that was about all. Not enough to get a photo unfortunately. It was an exciting few minutes though!
