Afternoon lessons

Two young green woodpeckers in the garden this afternoon – they could just about fly but weren’t very good at clinging onto a tree. Hints of red on their brown barred heads and a distinctive call. On fledging, each parent usually takes half of the young (five to seven eggs normally laid) and shows them where to feed so I presume that’s what was happening today.
