    Great Spotted Woodpecker & Ring-Necked Parakeet

    While watching this woodpecker on the feeder, this parakeet would, every now and then, jump of its branch and try and force the woodpecker off, after a bit of luck I managed this shot during the attack! (It still didn't move the woodpecker though!)
  5. Isn't it nice....

    Isn't it nice....

    .... when a Great Spotted Woodpecker gives you such a clear view of the nape so you can definitely ID it. So many of my pictures I end up searching through, blowing them up, getting the magnifying glass out, just to check whether I can see the teeniest weeniest bit of red!!! One of the pair...

    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...

    Just can't get at it!!!

    A Great Spotted Woodpecker was exploring a treehole with some determination. Guess there was something good to get at LOL Saturday fun
  10. A tight squeeze

    A tight squeeze

    I just managed to squeeze the camera through a gap between a peanut feeder on the left and a large post on the right to get this picture of a juvenile Great Spotted Woodpecker. Both the feeder and post were well out of focus but I had enough pixels to be able to crop them out. This was one of...

    The "Whaddayouwant?" Look

    He seems to have learnt that look very quickly and has it down pat already!! Great Spotted Woodpecker Juvenile in the feeding area. I'm not sure if we have placed the feeders on the edge of two adjacent territories, as we've seen both male and female adults chasing off young ones, but being OK...

    Or it would be if only he'd turn round!! This young Great Spotted Woodpecker had found the log feeder and learnt how to balance on it. Saturday fun

  17. What is that!!!

    What is that!!!

    He seems rather unsure about what might be amongst the peanuts! Great Spotted Woodpeckers are regulars at both feeding stations (this is the lower one). This was a male at the end of May, we'd not seen the female for a while. Saturday Fun

    Is it going to rain?

    A day rather like this one here. Heavily overcast! Seems this Great Spotted Woodpecker isn't too sure of the weather. Saturday Fun
  21. Fattening up

    Fattening up

    This Great Spotted Woodpecker took a wee breather before going at the fat balls again. It was almost as if he thought he'd never see them again. I had to take my chance of getting a picture at that point LOL Saturday Fun

    He wanted to reach the fat filled coconut but his opponent did not let him ... 🤣.

    Great Spotted

    I think a pair of them live in the woods just across the bus stop path from the garden. Those woods used to be a good spot for finding russula mushrooms in Fall, but now there's too much foot traffic through there due to a frisbee golf course that winds through the woods and across the lawns and...
