Late in February this year I saw a great spotted woodpecker (Dendrocopos Major) in our garden. Now that the leaves have fallen from the trees I have seen this bird (I’m assuming it’s always the same one) several times in the last month. In fact, this woodpecker is becoming somewhat of a regular visitor, sometimes hammering the trees, but usually enjoying the peanuts in the feeder.
Last week, I had the opportunity to take a series of photographs in better conditions than last time. Here’s the best one!
