I have spent a large amount of time this weekend tracking Lesser Spotted Woodpeckers in the New Forest in the hope of getting some photos.  I've now found one who seems to have a particular drumming post on a dead tree.  Haven't actually managed to get views of him drumming, but seen him flying off a number of times immediately after drumming.  So next, I will set up some distance from the tree before sunrise one morning and hope for a photo.  I'm pretty certain I know the exact branch he is using - just not sure what angle I need to see through all the twigs.

So in the absence of any decent bird photos this week, I've have been photographing Snowdrops again.  Trying to work out if I would get any enjoyment out of investing in a proper macro lens.  I think the answer is yes.
