Woodpecker seeking Valentine

Be my Valentine!

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!


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?
