I used to see them every time I drove along the M4 near Reading, but never got the chance to stop and take a pic.

Many thanks, yes they are quite a common sight nowadays. Sydlings Copse is just north of Oxford, and the birds can be seen soaring over the city centre. They were reintroduced to the Chilterns near Wallingford from the Pyrenees, and have spread from there. Also common along the M40 near the Stokenchurch cutting.

Lovely shots of a lovely bird Victor.
Saw these birds for the first time only recently.
You did well with their favorite food.
Particularly like the first shot, where the birds spits out some seeds
Be yourself; everyone else is already taken

Yellow-bellied sapsucker.


They feed on the sap of trees. For this, they drill rows of holes.
