I've been trying all week to take some decent photographs of the adult woodpecker and the fledgling that have been visiting the feeders. The adult usually arrives first, calls the little one over and proceeds to pop food into it's beak. Since this is the best I could do here are pictures of my herbaceous border that they are able to admire from the feeding station.
I was reading this morning on Yarnstorm's post that Jane cannot stand the expression 'going forward' and she gives a link to an article in The Independent that includes 100 banned cliches, going forward being top of the list. I too detest these inane phrases having spent many years working in occupational psychology where they are rife, 'touch base' was top of my hate list. So I was a bit surprised today when I went to tell Mr FF that I thought the baby bird had finally grasped the idea of feeding itself, the little one is 'peck enabled' I said, where the hell did that come from.
