Green Woodpeckers, Fleet Head, Wakering

Matt and I headed out to Fleet Head this morning with the hope of seeing a Merlin or Hen Harrier and, as always, failed. But we did run into these Green Woodpeckers displaying to each other. We certainly hadn't seen anything like it before and first presumed them to be a pair courting. Further inspection, however, revealed they were both males. We could only guess that they were highly charged enough to display to anyhting or that this is what happens when yodelling doesn't decide a territory.
