Woodpecker likes Quince!

This Green Woodpecker, a juvenile I think, spent several minutes clinging to our small quince tree.

It probably would have stayed much longer if my photographic efforts hadn’t disturbed it.

“Backwoods” camping

The woodland has just been used for some “semi-wild” camping. Tasty chilli con carne cooked over the camp fire but not with meat caught in the wood as Ray Mears would have done. One person slept in a hammock slung between the trees. Image shows the cast iron Dutch oven being heated up ready for the food.
