A tight squeeze
I just managed to squeeze the camera through a gap between a peanut feeder on the left and a large post on the right to get this picture of a juvenile Great Spotted Woodpecker. Both the feeder and post were well out of focus but I had enough pixels to be able to crop them out.

This was one of two juveniles we've been seeing, so presume they were nest mates.

Bit late posting this as I tried to do it before going birding for the day, but my browser crashed for some reason and I lost it all and have had to try again now.

Hope you've had a happy Sunday.
