A quick walk through carlisle park on my way to the supermarket first thing was quite productive. On my way down I could hear a Green woodpecker calling from behind Castle close. By the time I reached the park it called again from some tall ivy clad trees in front of the houses. It flew off and over the bowling green towards Ha hill. I have never seen one here before. Do these birds move around at this time of year or is it a Mitford or a Bothal bird exploring beyond their usual territory? There was also 4 Great spotted woodpeckers, all males including 3 in one tree. Other woodland birds this morning were Goldcrest, Bullfinch, Nuthatch, Marsh tit and Jay. Too nice a day to go to work but I have to.
