This Great Spotted Woodpecker, has been visiting the pear tree feeders on and off for the last few weeks now, sometimes two or three times a day.
A typical pose is usually on the peanut feeder or the trunk of the pear tree as below.
As I was trying to get a decent photograph, the woodpecker decided to fly to another branch, just as I pressed the shutter, giving me the image below which I am really pleased with,
pure luck no skill.
Same situation with the next photograph, the Great Spotted Woodpecker decided to launch itself off the feeder exactly as I pressed the shutter, not perfectly sharp but still a nice image.

Another first for the Pear tree was this Greenfinch, came to the garden for two consecutive days, I have not seen a Greenfinch in the garden for years now, so hopefully this is about to change.
This Carrion Crow has been systematically stripping twigs from a Silver Birch tree at the bottom of the garden for its nest.
