Pear Tree Woodpecker. !!

The old pear tree in the garden, has been visited on and off by several woodpeckers over the years, but the Great Spotted Woodpecker visits gradually became less frequent.

  Last visit recorded was in March 2013 shown in the photograph below.

That is until the other day, when a flash of colour on the pear tree caught my eye, this fine male Great Spotted woodpecker sat motionless on the branch for about ten minutes, before moving on to the peanut feeder, where it fed for a further five minutes before finally moving on.
