Father and Son (or Daughter)

While I was busy doing my last post 'The Chilly North' there was quite a bit of noise in my garden, two Great Spotted Woodpeckers on the nutfeeder, a male and its young.  The noise was coming from the juvenile, wanting his (or her) Dad to give it some peanuts.  Lovely to watch.  The GS Woodpecker adult and young have been visiting my garden now for about three weeks and I have noticed that it is the male GS Woodpecker that does the feeding, this I also saw last year.  I very quickly got my camera and took these pictures through the lounge window.

Lovely to see, well captured! I do wish I had GSWs in my garden.
