This young great spotted woodpecker was trying to get a good look at whatever was looking at him – which was me, taking his picture. He learned to come to the nut feeder after closely watching his parents but it was a while before he got the hang of it.

    What a beautiful bird – I love his red toupee and the ‘Is it safe?’ expression. You should join some groups so that more people can see your lovely work.

  • Hi Jan, thank you, and yes I’m still finding all those groups a bit bewildering… but your pictures remain amazing, as ever!
