New life

The warm and dry weather that was predicted stayed away. Instead we had unstable weather with regular showers or rain. Not good for drinking birds at the hide.
Lately a family of Great spotted woodpeckers (Grote bont specht) is hanging around. Both parents and 1 juvenile are seen regulary at the pool and around the hide. The parents are still feeding the youngster. More and more juvenile Great Tits (Koolmees) are visiting too.
Other visitors are still Red Fox (Vos), Red Squirrel (Eekhoorn), Tawny Owl (Bosuil), Blackbird (Merel), Robin (Roodborst), Chaffinch (Vink) and Eurasian Jay (Gaai).
I'm waiting for dry weather and new species...... .
