Very nice. They are quite common around here, but I've never managed to photograph one except in the distance. Here in Brittany it's said if the green woodpecker sings (well, it's a sort of croak, really) then it's going to rain. It's usually true, but it rains a lot here anywayWink They eat ants - very useful creatures.

Thanks for the comments. Yes, they're incredibly wary - always looking around them and up at the sky. As usual, it's a pity the picture has had to be compressed to 100kb because the full size version is technically one of the best I think I've taken, but it doesn't really show on this version.
