Nice photo!

I can't come on Sunday, so no need to worry. There were a few blackcaps and the female kestrel feeding on the ground the other morning when I came past. Do you know the whereabouts of the woodpeckers these days - heard drumming in area 25, and seen flying over the children's playground by Gloucester gate a couple of times recently, but otherwise a bit secretive...

Cheers,

Piers

I have not been able to track them down yet. When the eggs have hatched the young are very noisy, this is the best time to track them down.
