The GSW (dendrocops major)
A visit to one that has been on the file for a wee while. Thought I might use him as I have not been out so much lately.
This is one that kindly visited my back garden for a few days. Not seen him since but I live in hope !!!
Many many thanks to all for the c/c's on the merganser. Very gratiyfying
