Middle spotted woodpecker

This pair of woodpeckers certainly chose a site that I found strange for a bird that prefers 'privacy' as it was on a crossroads opposite a bus stop. I was told that if you sat at the bus stop you would put them off visiting the nest so Les and I took a leaf out of the woodpeckers book and hid behind a tree to watch and they fed the young. I was impressed with the speed that they found insects in the trees as they seemed to return very quickly with a full beak as can be seen in the pictures
