We have waited patiently since the end of November, for this day to arrive. Yes, the Woodpecker has finally given in and twigged that there is food to be had in the feeders. The other great bonus is the trees are not getting decimated now! The bird itself appears completely unaware of our presence as we sat for almost an hour in the van, which acted as a hide!
James had been down at Bruichladdich today, and had seen 6 Purple Sandpipers on the shoreline while out on Loch Indaal itself there were 4 Razorbills, 4 Red throated Divers in summer plumage and lots of Great Northern Divers. JRH
