Martin. You have got some beauties there !! I particularly like the third one down but they are all nicely posed and photographed.

Do you fancy Rossall Point on Wednesday's high tide ??

I see you're taking some time to process during the unsettled weather! These images are superb Martin. I see you have a male and a female there - am I right?

Hello all,

Many of the foraging, breeding and signaling behaviors of woodpeckers involve drumming and hammering using the bill. To prevent brain damage from the rapid and repeated decelerations, woodpeckers have evolved a number of adaptations to protect the brain. These include small brain size, the orientation of the brain within the skull and the short duration of contact. Thanks a lot.....
