On 1st September I made mention on this blog of a juvenile Great Spotted Woodpecker that was visiting our garden on a regular basis, but that I'd only ever managed to get an image of its underside - unless it was on the fat ball feeder. A couple of hours later I was in our conservatory, fortunately with camera at my side, when the woodpecker arrived. This time I did manage to get an image which shows more than its underside.

The bad news is that I've not seen this bird since then. As it was visiting several times a day, I'm just hoping that it has moved on to somewhere where it can find 'natural' food a-plenty, and that it hasn't succumbed to one of the local Sparrowhawks.
