video
Just a short video of one of the regular visitors to our garden. This woodpecker comes daily to the bird feeder and feasts on peanuts or suet but this afternoon must have decided he wanted some ants out of the grass (we are beseiged by ants this summer!) Later he brought his baby to show us but of course my camera was nowhere near where I was sitting - isn't that always the way?
Although we live only about 3 to  4 miles just outside Wolverhampton we  get a lovely variety of birds visiting which have included jays (usually 2 of them), greenfich, nuthatch,robins, treecreeper, black cap, green woodpecker,great tits, coal tits, blue tits and of course long tailed tits who come in droves!We also had a couple of ducks and even a white peacock who we think wandered over from Wightwick Manor (National Trust House) which is just round the corner from here.The list is endless!!!
greenwoodpecker and the jay

nuthatch and robin,





a very wet baby blue tit waiting for his mum on the greenhouse and the two ducks who came and almost knocked on the kitchen door asking for bread!

That's it for now. If I can find the photos of the white peacock I'll add those later. Hope you've enjoyed a little look at the wildlife in my garden.
