Nice roasted as well

or mixed with spuds in a mash

or in a soup,

or in a risotto

It's willows that put out the fluffy stuff here. S. alba, fragilis and rosemarifolius, all do it

I have what I think are hybrid black poplars, they don't do that and the lombardies have never produced a flower that I've noticed.

I wonder how many aerosols from the car parts shop would be needed. might be an easier option

2 pack car body paint.  It's a bit deadly, follow the H&S guidelines. Needs etch primer to start. External metalwork paint might do just as well, cheaper as well as less deadly

Ours it British Racing Green. Very tasteful

10 years and very little damage inside or puit

Get the aluminium one and paint the frame before glazing it. 

That's what we did

Lesley, I'd never seen a green woodpecker before I came to live here but they're quite numerous and breeding, we have groups of juveniles most years. They spend a lot of their time in the meadow poking around for ants.

Seed ID please

I agree with Zenjeff, those in the pic are inside the round smooth seed case.

Your woodpecker won't appear Lesley, neither will mine, green or greater spotted.

The moorhen has already disappeared from the pond in readiness and the heron hasn't been seen for ages.

I can rely on the blackbirds, tits and finches though
