I Haven’t Seen My Great Spotted Woodpecker Since April (1 Viewer)

It has just occurred to me that I haven’t seen my regular female Great Spotted Woodpecker in my garden since 8th April. There have been times I’ve not seen her for a few weeks and she will turn up but it’s not like her to not show up at all especially now as it’s September. I have the feeling she may have passed on, but she was a brilliant regular to my feeder and hopefully her spouse & kids return to the garden soon and continue her legacy.

Our local ones seem a bit more subdued. On my upland patch they don't even drum before and during the breeding season. They do still breed though.
