Woodpecker - Chuck Berry

RAIN, WIND, WIND RAIN, RAIN and more WIND!
(but enough about me)

well that's been the size of it over the past few of days
so we are guessing that
June is Bursting Out All Over?
It ain't keeping us indoors though.
 L-ALBUM WAINSCOT
 ROUND-WINGED MUSLIN
 BIRD'S WING
 SINGLE-DOTTED WAVE
but even more interesting than all above and a 'new species' for us
 RHAGIUM MORDRAX
(sounds and looks more like some creature out of
Lord of the Rings)
which is a mouthful on its own, but when you consider the vernacular name
BLACK-SPOTTED PLIERS SUPPORT BEETLE
video
CLICK BEETLE
along with a
 THREE BAND SLUG
 A small stand of
COMMON POPPY
cheered the situation a little there at which point it dawned on us
that we had omitted to report a
RED KITE
of a few days ago, yet another from Mr Foot, thanks Dave!
(image taken from the archive)
 The
RED-EARED TERRAPIN
now seems to be sunning itself on the bank of the pond with some regularity
so perhaps no reason to highlight it again in the future. 
 GREAT MULLEIN
are now springing up all over the place followed by yet another
Sad Song.
 This
SEDGE WARBLER
video
 was first noted on the 24th of April
and started getting vocal 2 days later. Since then it has not missed one day
of being in 'full song'
video
 but still has not found a Mate after more than 50 days.
It gets our 100% for effort and there's still time
Another new plant to us is
 STAR of BETHLEHEM
 (Ornithogalum umbellatum)
as it states in Wikipedia.
 Also found on the Heath along with some familiar faces in the forms of
MEADOW PIPIT
and a juvenile
STONECHAT
The day really finished with something of a 'BANG' and a close one at that
 as this juvenile
 GREAT SPOTTED WOODPECKER
video
landed just 8 paces away from where we stood,
outside of
Slight Return II
 Had we not been photographing Moths at the time,
 'camera in hand',
it is unlikely that we would have got these few shots.
