Woodpecker decider

Great spotted woodpecker is drumming away as I write (despite the weather…). The males drum to help attract a mate and /or define their territory – when their beak hits a tree this is the human equivalent of banging your head against a brick wall at 20mph! The drumming will continue to echo across Kineton for the next few weeks and then, once paired, the birds will need to quickly decide which tree they are going to chisel for their nest cavity.
