Greater Spotted Woodpecker
I was finally able to photograph this visitor at 17:40 this afternoon. Seconds after this photo the wood pigeon jumped onto the birdbath and shooed the woodpecker away. I shall refill the fatball feeder tomorrow morning as I've seen the woodpecker on it several times. The problem is that the sparrow squadron eats like horses - four new inch. and a half fatballs on Tuesday morning were all gone by this morning. If they weren't so much fun, I'd begrudge their greediness.
