Great Spotted Woodpecker.............................................................................

While we were having a rest at the feeding station at Moore Nature Reserve last weekend we saw this male Great Spotted Woodpecker.

He fed on the suet block for a good five minutes.

I only had my 18-200 lens on the camera and these cropped images were the best I could manage...
... still a nice record of the moment.
