Happy Boxing Day! Today I’m looking ahead to February.

February is the time when the greater spotted woodpeckers start to announce their presence and find a mate by drumming, usually on dead and resonant timber. We had local resident a few years ago who discovered that he could sound altogether more impressive by drumming on our TV aerial. It certainly got our attention but I hope he didn’t end up with the most awful headache…..

As you can tell birds are a favourite subject matter for me but it won’t be all birds this time, I promise!

See you tomorrow.

Best wishes,
