Mother has just landed back near to the hungry juvenile Great Spotted Woodpecker.

I had spent 4 hours getting nowhere in 3 of the reserve's hides. Then I decided to call it a day and captured this family scene right on the edge of the carpark!

I know the adult bird is blurred through movement, but I decided not to crop for the sharp baby and keep this uncropped image. What do you think?

Thanks for looking.

Regards

Adrian

You cant ask birds to stay still. Well done on capturing two.
