This was our fourth visit to woodpecker, it is so quiet and peaceful. Saw lots of hares, rabbits, woodpeckers, Swift's, swallows and also orchids growing in the churchyard nearby. Hopefully we will be back again next year :)

Hi Mary, thank you for coming to see us again I'm glad you enjoyed it. Grahame
