I was in my bedroom when I heard this unusual bird-call. I peered outside my window and lo and behold there was this wonderful green woodpecker and guess where it was?
It was next to my strawberry pot plant, cawing away!
So I grab my camera and run out at full pelt. Unfortunately I must have sounded like a herd of elephants stampeding because this beautiful bird took off the moment I came barging through!
And of course Charlie watched the whole thing from where was.
He's too mortified by my effort to say anything! :-)
The woodpecker that could have been (taken from English Country Garden site)!
Have gloriously HOT HOT HOT Saturday everyone! Stay cool please!
