After the stroll around a very damp Riverside Park on Wednesday I stopped off at Bookham Common.
Great Spotted Woodpecker
The most common species were Long-tailed Tits, calling and frantically feeding through the branches overhead. Rarely stopping for a moment so these are the best I could manage.
Management of the common and woodlands continues apace to open up the canopy floor so many trees are being thinned out.
So how old do you think this one was? (Click to enlarge)
Lichens are a sure sign of damp sites.
The watery sun hides behind the gathering clouds, so it's time to make tracks for home. FAB.
