The Woodpecker Network


Has anyone found a Lesser Spot excavating yet - or even a nest? We have one report so far and will be visiting with our nest inspection camera next week.

Many thanks to everyone who has sent us information of Lesser Spot sightings/territories so far.

Please keep searching for excavating birds and nests and please get in touch as soon as you find one, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Many thanks - Ken and Linda

Don't confuse juvenile Great Spotted Woodpeckers with male Lesser Spots - they both have red caps!

Dont confuse your woodpeckers
