A very vocal and curious Great Spotted woodpecker at the nest hole, being fed by both parents and very near to fledging. At least 1 juvenile foraging in the area a week later and no one home at the nest hole. Filmed on may 27th
Living in Bedford I am fortunate enough to be able to spend a lot of time on the Norfolk Coast, based around Snettisham and Holme. Most of my photos are likely to come from Norfolk but Bedfordshire does throw up some surprises occasionally, including our best Garden bird, my first Firecrest, feeding on bushes 15 feet from the back window.
