Great Spotted Woodpecker

Great Spotted Woodpecker

Observation - Great Spotted Woodpecker - UK and Ireland. Description: 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 -
