Never seen Green Woodpeckers hereabouts. But there was a big bank of orchids (not sure which ones) in the country park.

This year has been an excellent year for Orchids.they are just at the end here on the Marches. We found a Butterfly Orchid for first time this year, that was on Llynn Peninsular. Locally to us this year we found :- Marsh, Bee, Pyramidial, Common Spotted, Twayblade and Early Purple Orchids.
Re Green Woodpeckers or Yaffle as some folk call them. They are mainly ant eaters they are very common where we live we live,they occaisionally visit our garden. If you ever see what looks like a burnout cigarette ash on the ground it would be Green Woodpecker poo.
The Great Spotted Woodpecker is a regular visitor to our garden

We get them too, several times a day. Last year and this year they also brought their young to the feeders in our garden; they are now coming by themselves, lovely birds. We also get a couple of nuthatches, but curiously, we didn't see any for about 2 months. Not just us, but neighbours said the same. Then a couple of weeks ago, they appeared again and visit several times a day, like they did before.

Confirms we donít have GWs in much of Scotland. I must have seen them Down South. Thereís a recording as well as the distribution map in RSPB:-
