Cnocell Y Coed - Woodpecker

Cnocell Y Coed - Woodpecker

Bizarrely, Woodpecker was one of the first words I was taught in Welsh, when we moved here 17 years ago; 'Cnocell y Coed' "Blimey, there must be a lot of Woodpeckers in Wales" I thought, if I'm going to need to be able to chuck 'Cnocell y Coed' into casual conversation on a regular basis.
