Great Spotted Woodpecker
Observed: 18th May 2013 By: John Pilkington

A female GSW seems to visit the garden over 2 periods each year; in the Spring and in Winter. I guess it uses the food sources during breeding periods and in the cold when little else is available. This bird also visited the ground-based feeders briefly - not seen this before.
