Green Woodpecker: Dawn and I headed up to Carnforth to see her family, but I was able to persuade her to make a detour to Heysham in search of the Bonaparte's Gull.

After and hour or so in search of the gull I started to get a bit peeved as I had that sinking feeling, we dipped on the bird and headed to her dads house.
My day soon brightened up, as the traffic built we decided to take the scenic route to Milhead via the Shore Road where I spotted a Green Woodie sitting on a fence post, we parked up, I grabbed my camera and soon there were two birds which showed really well.
