A Visitor

The Great Spotted Woodpecker is a regular visitor in the garden. In the Spring and Summer the parents often bring their young to the feeder. I haven't managed to get a good picture of the youngsters yet.
But while passing the lounge window I saw this male feeding on the nuts...
Males can be distinguished from females by the crimson spot on the back of the head.  This bright colour is absent on females.
