Young Greater Spotted Woodpeckers

It is now time (first week in June) that the young Greater Spotted Woodpeckers start coming in to the garden. It starts with the adult birds feeding frantically, filling their beaks with food and returning to the nest:

This one is a male woodpecker taken with my 500mm lens in the garden - ISO640 f8 @ 1/200sec.

Here is a young woodpecker in our cherry tree:

Taken with the 500mm lens, ISO640 f8@ 1/400sec.

And the shot that I was waiting for - the male woodpecker feeding its young:

Taken with the same kit, ISO640 f8 @ 1/800sec.
