A full frame capture of a "teenage" Great Spotted Woodpecker (Dendrocopos major), taken in the garden the other day. This must be one of the second brood fledged this year, as you can still see the vestiges of the red juvenile crown feathers. The tail has some growing to do too!

Many thanks for your comments on yesterday's upload - always appreciated Smile

Why on earth would Sylvia want to swap the peace and quiet of the countryside for the delights of suburban Bristol and your nosey neighbours Ade?!Wink
