This Female Green Woodpecker is often seen at Uphill Somerset. She is very noisy and a pleasure to watch fly around. I often see her on posts around the nature reserve there.
In reply to Paul Cousins:
This is the Female's Mate. Again seen at Uphill but much shyer. I spent 3 long afternoons looking and waiting for this bird. It was well worth it.
Males have a black 'moustache' which has a red centre.
wonderful series of photos Paul C. I have one to add from Australia by my brother; not sure what type of lizard it is or whether you would class this as a fence post due to it being metal !
