    Wonderful photographs - for me one of the many joys of the camper van is contact with nature. When I still had my T4, I would lie on my front in the bed with the back flap open watching the birds in the garden where I was parked - usually with a camera in my hand!

    Unfortunately seeing a woodpecker and having a camera in my hand have never coincided!

    Do please remember to feed the birds this winter it's going to be a tough one for them with very little fruit on the trees.

    That reminds me of just before we moved house the last time, in the garden on the bird table was a woodpecker having a go at the nuts, I got some cracking photos of it and it spent ages there.:thumb:

    Problem ... this was an SLR film camera and I didn't know hubby had used the film in it and not put another in ... I only realised when I'd gone past 36 pictures and it kept going .....:shout:
