Lesser Spotted Woodpecker, near Peterborough, 3 March 2020

Side-by-side comparison of female Lesser Spotted Woodpecker photographed on 3 March 2019 (left) and female Lesser Spotted Woodpecker photographed on 3 March 2020 within 100m of each other. I believe this is the same bird, still on the territory. There was another LSW nearby, presumably its mate, and the pair are one of the last few known pairs in the Peterborough area. Let's hope they have a successful breeding season!
