Vandal in the Garden

We have recently moved House which has a large back garden. We have put bird boxes up on various trees in the garden for next spring.
The problem I have is that a great spotted woodpecker has decided that its a great idea to drill the holes larger in two of the boxes and damage two others.
Any ideas how I can stop this, other than making them out of concrete.

These are a bit more expensive but have a smaller hole - ideal for blue tits.
