Lesser spot at nest

Our report on Lesser Spotted Woodpecker nest recording in 2018 is now available on this website, 2018 October Newsletter with details of all the nests found, fledging success and lots of photos and further information.
Thank you to everyone who contributed to the success of the project this year.

Thanks from Lesser Spotted Woodpecker Network to everyone who has helped with searching for nests and sending us information on Lesser Spot activity this year. Nine nests were monitored. The 2018 breeding season report will be available soon on our website.

We are pleased that Lesser Spot network volunteers are/have been monitoring eight nests as part of the project. 

Great news, volunteers have found Lesser Spot nests in Herefordshire and the New Forest in last couple of days, bringing our 2018 total to four so far.

Volunteers for the Devon Pied Flycatcher network have found a new Lesser Spotted Woodpecker nest with four eggs and as of 29th May four chicks.

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