Those are stunning pics PPH, it almost looks as if they were posing for them. Your friend has a knack for a good photo, they really are lovely and the pics are much appreciated. They are quite animated pics with either their mouth open or with seed or a berry in it, just brilliant. Thanks for posting them PPH Very Happy

Thanks for showing us your friends pics PPH they are really good and close up.
The young male Greater Spotted Woodpecker does have a red crown, the conclusive indentification would be seeing the wing pattern. If you look at your original Lesser Woodpecker post, you will see the difference in the 2 Pics I put on, that should help

We have revamped the feeder we bought as we were not happy with the hight, Mrs S got a big pot and we filled it with rubble and soil then finished it with slate being in Wales, and moved it so we can see it out of the window which will make it easier to take photos, and videos, and also its higher


affraid affraid I've just seen the price on the ticket Mrs S left on the Tub
scratch scratch Now where's my credit card gone

ps yesterday for the first time we had a greater spotted woodpecker visit - i was very excited as i've never seen one before. It was bigger and had red underneath, i'll keep a look out and try and get a photo if he returns.

Glad you have a Greater Spotted Lai look forward to seeing the pics ours is really alert. The slightest monvement and he's off before you can raise the camera. It just show what can happen if you put a feeding station up. It's just over 12 Months since we moved here, and we had no little birds atall. Now we have between 25 to 30 Sparrows, loads of Blue, Great, and Coal tits. A pair of Bullfinches. The dreaded Crows of course, Collered Doves. Our 2 Woodpeckers, and yesterday we saw our first Robin cheers cheers

Ps I'm not passing your message on to Mrs S LW, you just encouraging her into bad habits

On my travels I bought this yesterday. Its a fat ball holder where you stab the fat balls and thread the metal rod through and hang it up. I thought it might be worth a go

Good idea PPH - let us know if it works well. Hopefully the crows and jackdaws won't be able to use it!

That looks handy PPH and the fat balls will be easier for the birds to get at I imagine. A nice little find.
