The Great Spotted Woodpecker (dendrocopos major)
Rather a grubby looking bird captured a little while back. Not sure quite what he had been involved in !! Still a pleasure to see IMO.
Thought it made a bit of a break from Bushy Stags anyhow.TongueTongueTongue
Thanks very much for all the attention to Mr Jack Daw.

He does look a bit grubby, but still a nice subject to have captured.

A fine shot Ron, no doubt his grubby feathers are the result of him grubbing around for grubs!
