Happy New Year to all. To start 2011 off in a suitably Purple manner, here's an etching by my brother Mark, hot off the press from his home in Antwerp. It commemorates the pernicious attack on a Great Splatted Woodpecker which I observed in Marlpost Wood (Southwater) on 26th June 2008. Let's hope that iris gets up to His old tricks this summer.
Best Wishes, Neil
