Great spotted woodpecker...
Andy Grinter put me on to this nest site that he came across while out birding the other evening, so I went along to have a look. It was easy enough to find, the young bird never stopped calling and could be heard some way off. I set the camera up, stuck it on record and then moved back and waited. It paid off and the edited version can be seen below along with this great shot of the male feeding the young bird taken by Andy:
Great spotted woodpecker: A. Grinter
Judging by the size of the little chap, he'll be out of there any day now.
