Spring wildlife in the Midlands
Rare woodpecker at Kedleston Hall
A pair of very rare lesser spotted woodpeckers have made the park at Kedleston Hall their home this year. This male excavated a nest hole in April. The female laid six eggs and both birds are now feeding four chicks. This is great news, let’s hope that all four young fledge in three week’s time. This video shows both birds bringing food back for the young.
