Feeding at the Woodpecker nest
Following on from the previous post, I managed to continue seeing the Woodpeckers feeding at the nesthole, and once the rain had stopped I was granted a spell of sunshine and decent light for grabbing some photographs.
Feeding times have sped up of late, and rather than taking turns, it seems both parents can be out at the same time and return closely together. If one is already feeding or has fed and is waiting for the other return it will tend to the chicks and await a returning call from the other and then leave the nest for the next feeding spree.
Another thing I have spotted is what looks like waste from the nest, either from the young, excess food or general rubbish from within the nest made up of wood etc. This cleaning operation appears to be made on almost every feed at present.
