  • David Andrews (real name Brian Cut more) was in born in 1938 in The Elizabeth Garrett Anderson Hospital, Kings Cross, London, England, The eldest son of Sign Writer, Commercial Artist and Designer, Sidney Cut more, creator of several notable works in advertising, who produced the banners, flags and national emblems, used to decorate the processional route of The Queen’s Coronation in 1953, and also painted The Coat of Arms above a specially created entrance to Westminster Abbey.
  • In 1967 David returned to the London area, and was soon commissioned by Publishers Paul Hamlin, to illustrate a full color publication “Bird Behavior” written by Dr John Sparks, of the Zoological Society of London, producer of BBC One T.V. Program "Wildlife on One”. 
    From the late 1960s until the mid-1980’s a total of 24 more David Andrews pictures were published and distributed worldwide. During this period, many of his earlier pictures appeared on British T V programs Including ‘Softly, Softly’, ‘Z Cars’, ‘The Sweeney’, ‘Wild Alliance’, ‘George and Mildred’, ‘Robin’s Nest’, ‘Take the Highroad’, ‘Crossroads’, ‘Coronation Street’, Video Film, "The Bank Job", The Two Ronnie's’, ‘Through the Keyhole’ (home of Spike Milligan) ‘One Foot in the Grave’, ‘A Good Murder’, 'Vera', and as prizes on the conveyed belt, in ‘Sunday Night at the London Palladium’, with Bruce Forsyth.
  • David had several ‘ One Man Exhibitions’ in the 1970s including 5 at Harrods Knights bridge Gallery in London and several other venues throughout the U.K. including Arrogate, Watford, Birmingham. Bristol, Tor quay and The Cotswold's. Several other smaller Exhibitions followed in the early 1980s in Sydney Australia, Wellington New Zealand and Boston U.S.A.
  • The European green woodpecker (Picks irides) is a large green woodpecker with a bright red crown and a black mustache. Males have a red center to the mustache stripe which is absent in females. It is resident across much of Europe and the western Pale arctic but in Spain and Portugal it is replaced by the similar Iberian green woodpecker (Picks sharper).
  • The European green woodpecker spends much of its time feeding on ants on the ground and does not often 'drum' on trees like other woodpecker species. Though its vivid green and red plumage is particularly striking, it is a shy bird, and is more typically heard than seen, drawing attention with its loud calls. A nest hole is excavated in a tree; four to six eggs are laid which hatch after 19–20 days.
