March Update on Cornmill Meadows
Following a meeting of volunteers who responded to the January Forum plea for help, a date was fixed to plant whips along the southern boundary of Cornmill Meadows under the direction of Warwickshire Wildlife Trust. Further volunteers came forward after the February appeal, and we are very grateful for all the offers of help we have received.
Locally nesting, this bird is a female green woodpecker. The green woodpecker is the largest of the 3 woodpeckers that breed in Britain. It is green on its upper body with a paler belly and red on the top of its head. They eat ants and use their strong beak to dig into ant colonies and eat the residents. Look out for them in your gardens or where the grass is shortish, where they will dig for ants.
