I was lucky enough to go up to London last year to see 'Warhorse'. We stayed overnight with friends near Oxford and saw lots of red kites. We have lots of buzzards in Cornwall but it makes the news if a red kite is spotted here.
Over the last few years there are lots of greater spotted woodpeckers about. Really pretty birds. When the electricy poles on our fields were inspected they said one had to be replaced as woodpeckers had been nesting in it. I thought it was a joke at first and laughed when he told me. Why dig a hole in a electricy post when there are lots of trees about?
