Be my Valentine!
Our woodpecker is back. Here he is, advertising for a mate on Valentine’s Day. He has discovered that the most effective way of creating a loud noise is to peck away at the roof of Bidston Lighthouse. We wish him every success.
Meanwhile, the pigeons have already paired up.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
The woodpecker who performed for us last year is back. He has taken to pecking a tattoo on the spherical cupola atop the conical roof on Bidston Lighthouse.
We wish him every success in attracting a mate.
Woodpecker on Bidston Lighthouse, 8 Apr 2015
We’ve had reports of woodpeckers seen pecking at the metal roof of the lighthouse. This explains the curious sound that we’ve noticed recently, mostly during the early hours of the day, as the dawn chorus gets under way.
Have you seen the woodpeckers?
Do you have a photograph of them?
