Spotted less often than other 'peckers


Drake Gadwall




It was beautifully clear this morning so I leapt out of bed and went to Woodwalton Fen NNR, with Lesser Spotted Woodpeckers in mind. Just about everybody who's visited recently has seen at least one, so I couldn't fail, could I?

Er, yes.

I wasn't too miffed initially, but I read on Peterbirder that someone else had been this afternoon, and they'd seen one. That's just a little bit annoying...
