The adult male leaving the nest after a feeding session.
Well timed and captured, Dan. Carol
Excellent capture, straight out of Springwatch.
Dan, that looks an awefully small exit for him,
breath in springs to mind
a very well timed shot,
Like the timing on this capture Danny.
What a busy boy and what a great moment to capture him.
Hope you have ordered some good light for tonight
great capture,well spotted
Great wildlife study of this Kingfisher! (male Great Spotted Woodpecker - Dendrocopos major). Even if you don't always get the birds names right you manage to take some great photos.
This certainly supports sexual stereotypes - that the male leaves the nest without doing any tidying up. If this was the felame she would have fed the young and done some cleaning and would be carrying out some of the rubbish.
See you tonight and I've even remembered about the voting thing!
Spot on with timing with this great capture.
He's off to T's for coffee. Having eaten all the wood from that hole he made I doubt he'll have room for a doughnut, though.
A common occurance here Danny.The male leaving the nest after being thoroughly fed up !! And I must take issue with George regarding his comment about the females taking some of the rubbish out.What is wrong with them taking ALL of the rubbish out !!
He has a guilty, nervous look - are you sure that's his own nest that he's been visiting?
Nice work Danny keep 'em coming they do look good.

Oh yes Moira It is His...he is not a Prudhoe woodpecker.
A well timed capture Dan.
A tight squeeze Danny, great capture... Dave
great comp cracking colours and detail dan a beauty nice one
is he coming or going ?????? nice shot..........Mick
Well captured Dan.
What can be better than a Northumbrian blether??
Coming, going, tidying up... male, female... rubbish! Love every word of it................!
My comment: He was just too big for the female to get him out of the nest in her beak together with all the rubbish... so she kicked him in his a.... and showed him through that tiny hole! That for the surprised expression in his face.
A lovely image captured in the right moment,
