I’d heard there was a woodpecker nesting in the park and seen the guys with the huge lens pointing at this dead tree. This evening we head a lot of chirping and saw this wee guy popping its head out. There seems to be more woodpeckers around this year.
I have been looking forward to this. First cuckoo I’ve heard in 2021. Ardinning this morning. Lots of other birds singing, most I can’t recognise. I did hear curlew, peewits, ravens and dabchicks on the loch.
Mammals can be elusive and sometimes the first clue that they are there isn't the flash of a tail or the flick of an ear poking out of the foliage but a field sign - like poo! Often, finding and identifying the poo you find in your garden or on a walk will be the only way you know that
If I ever get to take the class to the woods again this will be useful.
