Is your Woodpecker a Great Spotted or a Lesser Spotted?
Great Spots are found widely throughout Britain, they are common in woodland and readily visit garden feeders. Lesser Spots are scarce and rarely seen. So you are much more likely to see a Great Spot than a Lesser Spot.
You can easily tell the difference………..
Don't confuse juvenile Great Spotted Woodpeckers with male Lesser Spots - they both have red caps!
