I have not had much success at my main winter feeding station for birds this winter. It has not been cold enough to attract many birds. I have moved it about 100 metres from the previous year to give a new background and there are three Silver birch trees right in front of the hide. I did expect the woodpeckers to land on the main trunk frequently on their way to the food, but they do not.  This male however does like to land on one of the thinner cross branches.
