    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

    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.

    A Python is a "deadly sneak" according to this headline in Nettavisen: http://www.nettavisen.no/nyheter/dde...422807419.html
    It must be a pretty large Python before it becomes deadly for humans, at least fully grown ones.

    You have more good close-ups there, Thijs,of the great tits. The two showing the adult feeding the youngster (#634.1 and #635.1) are well caught and I had to laugh at two others, in #633.2 the baby seems to be wondering how to get the water - or more likely waiting for parent to come and get some for it, while in #635.2 the lazy little so-and-so is sitting within pecking distance of nuts waiting for the parent below to feed it!
    #636.1 is worth printing out and framing, you know. Lovely.

    Thanks for the videos, Ombugge! You can certainly find them - had me on the edge of my seat several times.

    Yves, I was really interested in your post about the storks. I read it at the time but, as I said in my post above, never got round to answering it. It has prompted me to see what was the position of storks in the UK and, although they visit, no wild stork has bred here since the 1400's! A wildlife place not far from me, near Diss in Norfolk, has recently taken in a large number of young birds from eastern Europe which have been injured by flying into power lines. They had been at a rehabilitation centre in Poland, but the winters were too cold for them there. They will never fly again, so will probably remain where they are and hopefully one day breed. If so, some of their chicks will come our way in East Anglia and some may be sent over to the Netherlands. Keep an eye out, Thijs.
    But I learned via the web that last year a pair of wild storks had set up their nest on a tall rear chimney at Thrigby Hall, which is a wildlife park not very far from Gt. Yarmouth. They had been seen on the estate for some time and so a wooden platform was erected on a chimney specially to encourage the pair to get going. However, they disdained the offer and built their nest on another chimney stack! Sadly, though they stayed together, and were seen to mate several times, nothing came of it. I have just now rung the Hall to see if anything was happening this year. The answer was that although they are using the same nest and are obviously staying together, there has been no "happy event".
    However, they are still around, so perhaps next year......
    I must go to Thrigby Hall, it looked interesting and I have never yet seen a stork - unless it was at Slimbridge, Gloucs. the Wildlife and Wetlands Trust years ago. I can't now remember. But they would not have been truly wild. That was quite an experience, the birds were so used to humans and the titbits to be obtained that they simply followed you around and if you stood still for a moment they would be clustered round and standing on your feet, beaks up waiting for your offering!
    Thank you for your day's account, Yves.
