The Green Woodpecker

Since I moved to where I live now I have quite often heard woodpeckers, I have also caught a fleeting glimpse of them flying by but have never really seen one up close, well not until the last few weeks that is.

My dog disturbed a couple of green woodpeckers a few weeks ago and I was kicking myself as I had no camera with me, however our neighbour discovered this one but it turned out it is quite young and seems to have sustained some sort of injury.

A local bird expert has examined the bird in question and thinks it will recover after a good nights rest, fingers crossed for this beautiful bird.
