Pleased to have a new garden visitor.

I decided to start putting peanuts out. I already put out sunflower seeds, fatballs, mixed seed and suet blocks. Since putting the peanuts out I've had a new visitor who has been coming into the garden everyday. Not very good pics but thought I'd share anyway.

 Woodpecker, Wood pigeon and parakeet in same picture.

 Up until now I'd only caught fleeting glances of woodpeckers as they blazed through woodland, or heard them pecking. Never thought living on the outskirts of London I'd have one visit my garden. image
