Observation - Great Spotted Woodpecker. Description: I feel fairly confident in this ID. I wondered if anybody could shed any light on her behaviour. She visited occasionally through the winter.

I feel fairly confident in this ID. I wondered if anybody could shed any light on her behaviour. She visited occasionally through the winter. For the last two weeks she has been on the bird feeder almost constantly, I have seen her four times this morning and I am not looking. I have never seen a male bird here. Could she be feeding young, only if they eat peanuts, she doesn't have much time to do anything else but if there were young the male would be around? Maybe she has been unlucky in love and peanuts are a birds chocolate? More intelligent explanations welcomed. Thanks for looking.
