Great spotted woodpecker

Great spotted woodpecker r

I recently posted a photo of the red-hot pokers and explained about the woodpecker coming to feed off them.  Well, here it is, caught in the act.  I was pleased to get this as it is a very nervous bird and the shot required some cropping as I couldn’t get too close.  Lovely handsome bird though and the sound of this bird drumming on an old, dead tree, as I walk through  a wood in spring still makes my heart leap.
