Great Spotted Woodpecker "Dendrocopos major"

Another bird captured on an outing to Stover Country Park. Great Spotted Woodpeckers probe the tree trunks for insects and larvae, but will also feed on nuts and berries (especially in the winter months). It is much larger than the Lesser Spotted and the male is distinguished by the red nape on the back of his head.
