    Isn't he cute? I'm sure Wherrygirl will confirm whether he's a Great or Lesser Spotted Woodpecker - but whatever he is, he's a birdie version of a pneumatic hammer! Great photos Thijs.
    Cheers,

    Mark.

      Thank you Mark

    Hallo, the bird man is back.
    Goodness, you have some lovely shots there, Thijs. This is the greater spotted woodpecker. #642.1 is looking very alert and the second one perfectly caught having just extracted a nut. #644.1 is great, with the other bird in flight, wings oustretched, and in the second one the young bird sitting on top. I was puzzled when I saw that and had to check, for the one on top has a red crown, whereas the other bird has the usual red nape. But apparently the young G.S.Woodie does have red on its crown. And I love the last two. But they are all good pics.
    You are lucky, having woodpeckers. I'm jealous

      don't take many of them anymore,they all look the same and the most where taken at my spottingplace,which i don't come very often the last time.
      but here are some when we made a family day with the ''finch fund'' to minature city Madurodam in the Hague.
      very tame birds there.



      best regards Thijs

          so tame ,that when a woman with her child want to sit on the terras with a cup of tomato soup with a roll,that she put the cup on the table and before she sits down the seagull had the roll already.

          only got him when he had the roll,not when he taked it.





          when you or kids walk there ,eaten a sandwich,they got it out of your hands in a fly by.saw it with my own eyes.

              Madurodam is a minaturecity with manu icons of the Netherlands.build in scale of 1:24.
              and Holland is a water rich country,so also in 1:24 ,many water.but the carps are in real size.

                    Especially when they are such giant moorhens!
                    In that first link I have seen 10 of those places in reality. Seven more to go!
                    Seagulls are getting a very bad name over here, too. Particularly in the popular West Country seaside towns they can be quite dangerous in their attacks on people for the food they are eating. Strangely we have a few of the larger gulls who have arrived in town during the last few weeks - they are one of the black-backed gulls, the Lesser Black-Backed, I think. Some of their calls are similar to those of the herring gull (those that you photograph) and to hear them makes me think I am by the sea - glorious. I hope they hang around!

                    PS. I don't use Bucket much, as you know, but can't you change them to upright in Edit? it must be possible, surely.

                          I didn't know where to put this but, since it looks like the pig is the winner, I just post it here: http://www.reuters.com/news/picture/...eId=USRTX1NRT9
                          Most of the time that is.
