The Woodpecker's Hole

or is it?
This tree is on the plan d'eau. I am not sure how long for this world it is...

  1. I think something larger... and four-footed....
    has been scrabbling at the rotten wood...
    trying to get at grubs...
    it is what rotten-hearted willows are for!
    And the willow will survive...
    if it can keep its balance in a strong wind....
    if not, it will contuinue growing and put down roots whereever the top lands...
    unless, of course, someone removes it for "Elf & Safe-T" reasons...
    or to be "tidy"!!

    Nice spot... judging by the destruction... I'd hazard a guess at a badger.

    1. Or else...
      there is a little seen variety of woodpecker...
      that resembles a penguin?

  2. I reckon a coypu or that European type beaver Castor something or other creature that lives hereabouts....
