Hello everyone

Sorry I haven’t been updating this week been having a small holiday, but im back update each week day and today’s update is on a Great Spotted Woodpecker family

I have been watching the Great Spotted Woodpecker for a few weeks in Townley park, Burnley.

From watching the family of woodpecker I have found that there is both parents and at least three chicks, I can tell this as the chicks have different red marks on there head some brighter than others, hope you enjoy 😀

This is my very first encounter with a Great spotted woodpeckers and what a wonderful experience it was.

The woodpeckers kept landing on this tree and feeding there young chicks, which could be heard making loud chirping sounds from inside the nest hole. I watched them for about half an hour , just going back and forth with insects amazing !
