2 Green Woodpeckers

Just before work late morning I quickly nipped Bennyboy across the road for a walk. On the open grassy area next to the mature Ash tree were 2 Green Woodpeckers feeding. There are thousands of ants around at the moment but I was still surprised to find them so close to the house (I could see them from the front window)! The adult male preferred the deeper grassy areas before flying to feed opposite a parked car and the juvenile female was feeding on the shorter turf.
