Juvenile Great Spotted Woodpecker continued…. later this young bird did find the confidence and skills, gradually to manage the feeder near the window. I love the way Woodpeckers use their tails to gain stability, and the way this individual kept flying to and fro until it learned how to work its way along the pole and then hang onto the wire feeder. Conditions: A mostly cloudy day with a breeze, showers and rain. Temperature: Max 15- Min 12c

Precarious early on

It crept along the top pole that was moving in the breeze
