So I think you will appreciate the thrill I felt this morning when I went into the spare bedroom to check on my amaryllis bulb which is finally growing. This year's bulb is a late developer.
Then, a cursory glance through the window......
.... a green woodpecker!!!!!
We get lots of the great spotted woodpeckers but this is the first time we've seen the green one at home. We watched for a good five minutes as it pecked at the grass - poor worms.
So a promising start ~ happy weekend!
