Morning Dog Walk: Woodpeckers A-plenty!

Canvas Prints are also available, please Contact Me for information and pricing

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.

On this morning’s walk, there were birds everywhere! I saw many Golden Orioles (not close enough for photos), Bee Eaters, Barn Swallows, Woodchat Shrikes, Grey Wagtails, Iberian Magpies, various Warblers, plus many more! However, one thing I couldn´t help but notice was the number of both Lesser and Greater Spotted Woodpeckers accompanied with the noisy Iberian Green Woodpeckers.

A Lesser Spotted Woodpecker landed in a nearby tree and I managed to get a quick snap before it flew away. As you can see, it has a small red cap which isn’t yet fully grown, therefore, this is a young Male.

Soon after I spotted a Female Greater Spotted Woodpecker fly from a tree in the distance.
