Golden eyes

I have come to expect an annual visit to the garden by Lesser Spotted Woodpeckers and today I had one drumming intermittently nearby but I was unable to see it although it was probably no more than 100m from the garden. Hopefully it will hang around a few days and come and drum from the willow tree in the garden.

A family walk along Akerselva under blue skies did not reveal any migrating Buzzards or Cranes as I had hoped and I had to be satisfied with a ridiculously tame pair of Goldeneyes that were hanging around with Mallards waiting for bread.
