A beautiful visitor

A greater spotted woodpecker that flew into our window.
Recovering now at the Devon wildlife centre.


  1. So glad he survived...not like our tragic Bullfinches. Amazing photos Jane, you can see the individual tiny red feathers, and so confident.

  2. That is such an beautiful bird! I'm constantly delighted and surprised by how beautiful and whimsical birds are. Are woodpeckers quite as loud as they are depicted in Australian TV shows? I bet you probably wonder the same thing about Kookaburras, but I regret to inform the world that we hardly ever hear them! When we do, though, it strikes a very patriotic chord in me! Take care. Gorgeous picture.
