Many thanks for the C&Cs yesterday. I took these a little while ago in the Wareham forest, i thought it would make a change from the GSW. Have a great day.

Though we get GSW in droves (well, in 3 or 4 families anyway!) I've never seen one of these Greens other than in images. They are very attractive and your set here shows them beautifully.

What a beauty, they're much prettier than the GSW variety. I've only ever seen one in my garden and it was so memorable, like a little bit of real wildlife had visited. They look so oriental. Superb shots.

Three top class shots Brian. I think my vote goes to V2 simply because it seems to be quite unusual to find a Greenie off the ground, almost always seen ground feeding.

I like the natural setting in V 2, Brian, and for detail in the plumage, V 3.
A most attractively plumaged woodpecker.

Three terrific images Brian, I agree wholeheartedly with the Big O's comment, well done you on getting so close. There'd be no chance of me getting so close to one of these if I was out in the Forest of Dean with the two herberts (Gary D and Big Ade Osmant), when we were there the only birds we saw were the canada geese on Woorgreens Lake, the gruesome twosome must have scared all the others off!!!WinkGrinTongue
