Before any of my family, or indeed Lynda, pass out reading the title, let me explain....... Philbert and Felicity our tame pheasants have had chicks! (ten to be exact) Plus the Great Spotted Woodpecker has started bringing it's chick to the feeders as well. Summer is well under way although by the rotten weather you would never know!

Young Great Spotted Woodpecker
This young woodpecker was drinking the water out of the cupped leaves on the beech hedge. Never witnessed this behaviour before.
