To all those who had a go and an unusual Mystery Bird Quiz; one lacking a photo of a bird! James Spencer was the fastest to come up with the right answers, with others coming up with the right answers or equally credible alternatives.
The Answers were:
White-backed Woodpecker and Wild Boar. It should be obvious which refers to which question.
The White-backed Woodpecker is arguable the hardest to see in Europe due to low numbers and limited range (sometimes seen as 2 separate species with ‘lilfordi‘ split by some)
The Wild Boar’s ability to churn up quite vast swathes of the forest floor amazed me.
