Still working from archives Sad A full frame capture of a male Great Spotted Woodpecker (Dendrocopos major), taken in the garden at the beginning of December, in afternoon sunlight (a rare commodity to date!).

I was blown away by your response to yesterdays Blackbird upload - thank you everybody for your C&Cs, with a special thank you to Pete for the EC and to Adrian(tomcat), David(Craggwildlife), Dean(WindowonWildlife), Richard(MossyOak) and Brian (bricurtis) for their User Awards. Really appreciated and treasured Smile

The perfect follow up to your previous upload Sylvia, you've really nailed this woodpecker. Such wonderful detail, colours and clarity you've captured in the plumage
