Ali found the nest hole for this and the following three woodpecker photo’s. This year though it was much more difficult to get in position to take any pictures as it entailed climbing up a very steep wooded cliff edge, not the easiest thing to do with camera, tripod and 500mm lens. Well worth the effort though.
