Male woodpecker


The female and the juvenile did not pay a visit while I had the camera set up. The light was very poor, requiring record high ISO settings, and due to occasional rain I did not want to leave the camera outside on a tripod, so even with the FF equivalent of 840mm focal length this is just a very small part of the captured image. The woodpeckers are very frequent visitors, as are magpies though the latter aren’t on the feeders much I’m glad to say), but it is quite a while since I’ve seen a nuthatch in the garden (see below).
