Male Great Spotted Woodpecker
Comments(5) # Male Great Spotted Woodpecker london e10

The Woodpeckers are back into the habit of regular visits to our garden nut feeder. For several months there was almost no sign of them but now there's at least one male and one female visiting every day. Indeed the other day the female arrived before the male had left and clung onto the edge of our kitchen extension roof looking most annoyed for several minutes until she could take her turn at the feeder. Update: Further observations over the last twenty four hours suggest that we now definitely have more than two and possibly as many as five different Woodpeckers, several really quite small compared to the one shown above.
