The Woody woodpecker show

Recommended Posts

This charming pair of woodpeckers have built their nest in the most unlikely place imaginable.

The tree they chose overhangs the works test track.

For 16 hours a day a machine is constantly going round and round it.

The noise is loud to say the least with all the clanging and banging from the test track.


Are they bothered ----- Not in the slightest.

Nothing stops them bringing food for their youngsters, not even a scary creature like myself armed with a camera.


I spent the entire dinner break sat there taking pictures of them.


This is just a selection from the couple of hundred I took.

That tree Clive is older than you and me put together


A couple of videos of one of them giving the tree a real hammering 


The noise is the test track running.
