Great Spot …………………… ted Woodpecker

I suppose I should apologise for posting yet another picture of a great spotted woodpecker – but this one is a bit special.  I thought I might get a closer shot if I drilled some holes in the bird feeder post and filled them with suet bock impregnated with mealworms. This female is a regular visitor and soon found my tasty temptations. Yesterday (Thu 9th) she presented me with a lovely profile view.

Of course I took several shots (including a video) and, as this feeder post is only 3 paces from my regular seat in front of the laptop, they are some of the best I have ever taken.

If you want to see the video please follow this link.

Of course other wildlife is attracted to this food such as squirrels and this magpie, but only the woodpecker is adapted to take full advantage.
