Whilst I try to avoid uploading images of birds on feeders, I just couldn't resist this Juvenile Great Spotted Woodpecker (Dendrocopos major), clinging onto the fat block and gorging itself, just like a little avian Billy Bunter!

Many thanks for your support of my last upload. Much appreciated Smile

A really beautiful photograph depicting this rather beautiful face filling Great Spotted Woodpecker, stunning natural colours, and breathtaking detail throughout.
