Lesser Spotted Woodpecker

Yesterday I went to see this pair of Lesser peckers Just down the road.The male was watched excavating the nest site for about 10 mins before the female turned up.The male then turned his attentions immediately to the female.they both flew of to a nearby branch copulated and then chased each other around the tree for another five minutes.A very rare sight to have witnessed.They are very illusive at the beat of times.

Rare birds and a sight that's getting rarer and rarer, I imagine few people have seen the behaviour you describe Andy.

If you want details of where to go give me a call ,its well worth it and easily viewable from the road side.
