Latest news

Lesser Spotted Woodpeckers are feeding young.
As of 23 May, LesserSpotNetwork volunteers are monitoring 6 active nests with the first young due to fledge this week and the others over the next couple of weeks. So this the last chance to find a nest this year. If you found birds earlier in the season, please revisit the area and watch for adults bringing food to the young, they may lead you to find the nest.

Exciting news – we have reports of 19 active Lesser Spot nests, the most ever at this stage of the breeding season.
