Green Woodpecker

A while ago we photographed a Green Woodpecker on a visit to our garden but hadn’t been able to film one. However this has now changed as in July 2011 this video was taken with a hand held video camera.

It’s not the best quality but it does show this beautiful bird in all its glory!
