A Hungry Baby
All I've blipped today is this juvenile Great Spotted Woodpecker - and a grubby looking baby at that. He's very hungry as he's been hanging on to the feeder most of the afternoon, throughout all the rain and even apparently nodding off there. I've compared some shots I took in April last year, and the birds I captured then were absolutely pristine and bright white, so I've no idea why this year the ones I've seen have looked so dingy.
I've hung on today hoping the rain would abate a little so I could go out, however it hasn't done and I've taken this garden shot instead; thank you to cailleach for hosting the WildWed challenge.
Thank you for the response to my blue flower blip - it's nice that so many of you liked it.
