Lodmoor Country Park has always been a reliable place to find a Green Woodpecker, but usually I see them flying away or I just hear them in the distance. Today I found one that was too busy to worry about me.
It turns out that this is the first video I've made of this species since I filmed this young bird back in 2012. Just after the bird calls you can just make out the bird's long tongue.
The only other Green Woodpecker I've ever filmed was this very short sequence from a few years ago when I was on holiday in Budapest, hoping to see the very similar Grey-headed Woodpecker.
