“Bird Watch - August Guest House”

One of the extra "perks" that our guests enjoy at breakfast time in August Guest House, is bird watching. Our breakfast room over looks our extensive garden, with views beyond across Rosedale valley.
August Birdwatch

We have had a lot of interest shown by our guest in the various form of wildlife that appears in our garden. Of late we have a rather unusual bird that has taken up residence in the area, namely, a greater spotted woodpecker. It is unusual inasmuch that it's beak is considerably longer than normal. Our guests are fascinated by the antics of "Woody" the woodpecker. His fame has spread so much that he has appeared on television and several articles in the national newspapers.
As "Woody" has attracted so much interest, we have dedicated a page to him and the other wildlife that appear at various times of the year in our garden.
