Morning Dog Walk: Lesser Spotted Woodpecker

I take a camera along on my Dog Walks to bring you some of the sightings that I see on my morning walks, these photos are rarely going to be great quality as its hard enough keeping an energetic Dog entertained and get close enough to anything. They also help me identify where species are so that I can plan to return.

The area around the Quinta has a high population of Lesser Spotted Woodpeckers and they are usually easy to spot, however, taking a photo is a different matter. This morning whilst out with the Dog I heard one tapping away on branch of a Cork Oak tree. I managed to lie down on the track and slide into a position to take this photo before it noticed me.
