A nice surprisethis morning as I arrived at my local patch: a lovely little male Lesser Spotted Woodpecker feeding, unobtrusively, as they do, in the trees. It was somewhat foggy today and the light wasn’t great so the photos aren’t as good as they could have been but great to see one here as it’s a new species for the patch and the 4th I’ve seen in the last two weeks.
