A woodie treat
It's not often I get two Great Spotted Woodpeckers in the picture, I think the female is a bit of a bully and he disappears as soon as he thinks she's around. If he doesn't get the message straight off she's at him and there's a bit of a chase round the trees!!

They were a bit more comfortable during the late summer months after they'd sorted their two bairns out.

I will hardly be around the next two days as I have two hospital appointments.

Brilliant double capture getting the male and female in the same frame. It sounds as if he knows how to handle the situation (lol). Top-notch D! TFS!
 
These woodies sure look beautiful. Nicely captured, Delia.

Hope everything goes well with your doctor's appointments 🤞🙏
