Last week on bank of river Severn, I heard a tapping sound coming from a dead tree. As I went on to get view of other side of tree a bird flew off. Today I heard tapping from same tree. Moving cautiously, a bird's head appeared noticing me, then flew off. This time I saw colours, including blue, but even with my camera at ready the button was too slow. The tree has many holes at the back up where the bird was.
