Lesser spotted Woodpecker & Wood Warbler at Yarner Woods


Lesser Spotted Woodpecker
 

I had a good day out today at Yarner Woods reserve on East Dartmoor over the border in Devon.


Managed to capture shots of 2 new species photo-wise for me, the Lesser Spotted Woodpecker & the Wood Warbler.

We were fortunate to discover the nest of the Lesser Spot so I got some shots as the birds approached the area with food for a rather raucous brood.

The Wood Warbler stayed aloft so many of the shots were taken against the sky or the raindrops as they cascaded into my lens hood.

Nevertheless 2 good birds that I'd never photographed before in the UK (I did get LSW in Poland last year).
