Lesser Spotted Woodpecker

After hearing many reports of this elusive woodpecker in Wollaton Park I saw one at last  today (Mar 29th). This is a male as indicated by his bright red cap.

I have added a recent shot of great spotted woodpecker (taken at  the same location) for comparison. The great spotted is about twice the size of its lesser spotted cousin.
