Wildlife on SW15

Walking down the street today (the one with the trees that featured in The Atrocity Archive), I heard an unusual bird call. It turned out to be a woodpecker high up in a tree. Normally we get Greater Spotted Woodpeckers travelling up and down the railway embankment, but the colours were wrong...

A bit of googling later and I'm pretty sure I saw the much rarer Lesser Spotted Woodpecker.

A red-listed bird in Putney!

I think I saw one in our garden earlier this year. So perhaps they're natives of Tottenham too!

It looks delicious, but a little short in the brain department.
