I was sat in my car on a lane near my home hoping to photograph a Stonechat which I'd seen in this lane calling and flitting about the previous day when this Green Woodpecker flew onto the floor about twenty yards in front of me and started feeding on an Ant hill.
As you can see by it's red moustachial stripe that this is a male.
He finally finished feeding hopped onto a fence post had a look around for a time then took off.
|a quick look around before taking off|
Just goes to show that sometimes in the right place at the right time and of course with a bit of luck.
