|One of several juvenile Great-spotted Woodpeckers around Brandon today!|
I've always been a believer in none suppression of sightings and getting the word out so that all can enjoy, in fact I personally put the word out on the Woodpeckers in question, having discovered them with other members of the Brandon Volunteers, something in hindsight I regret! But I'm sad to say that the time may have arrived when I too will think twice before putting the word out. Despite there being a really sound group of regular caring photographers at Brandon there are simply too many selfish, clueless, idiots around with cameras and the well-being of the bird must be the priority, not the so called holy grail of the perfect photo!!
