This blog is about my birding exploits, which mainly take place in the Weymouth/Portland area, in Dorset. Will also include stuff from elsewhere, plus some other critters too. Hope you enjoy.

Lesser Spotted Woodpeckers

Excellent prolonged views of a beautiful, yet incredibly elusive species.

First off, the male, with it's glossy red white speckled cap.

A stunning bird.

And now the female, with it's creamy forecrown.

These are without doubt the best Lesser Pecker shots I've ever seen taken in Dorset. The first shot of the male is just stunning.
