Dave, Photo-a-day gets better each time I click on to it. Superb detail, absolutely crystal clear photo, a real credit to you.
The great spotted woodpecker (Dendrocops major) is widespread in all woods, including parks. Lovely colourful bird, well done and keep the birds coming.

Art, the male woodpecker has a red patch at the back of it's head, the female is like the one Dave's taken to-day.

Thanks folks.

I have a lot of photos of these but this was the first time I've managed to get a good clear natural shot not on a feeder.
