Great Spotted Woodpecker


According to my reference material there are over 200 different Woodpecker species around the globe.

Woodpeckers are featured in folklore and mythology from the Americas to darkest Africa, but the one I like to believe is that if you have a Woodpecker nesting in a tree in your garden it will bring you luck.

I would love to sit in a garden and hear the tap tap as they bore into the wood to make their nests and watch this beautiful little bird feeding its chicks.

This water colour depicts the Great Spotted Woodpecker, common to Europe and Asia.

On another note I have had to cut back on the number of drops with EC due to repeatedly running out of bandwidth. Over the years I have managed to get through each month with 3 gigs of bandwidth. Since starting with EC my usage has averaged 15 Gigs a month, at a converted rate of about 11$ per gig it is starting to get costly.

I find it hard to believe I am using that much bandwidth dropping EC cards and imagined someone had accessed my login codes and was stealing my bandwidth. I had my SP check for me but that is not happening.

The last few days I have closely monitored the usage and worked out I can only drop about 100 cards a day to survive till the end of the month. This basically means covering my inbox daily.

Any suggestions from the pro IT people on how to save on band width and participate in a meaningful manner will be most welcome.

Hi - great paintings!
I'd say if anyone can be of assistance about dropping Ecards, it would be The Entrecarder:
