Great Spotted Woodpecker in Ireland

Noah may have had some problems with the woodpecker on the ark in the photograph above, but I don’t have any problems with the Great Spotted Woodpecker in Ireland, it is good to hear of  a species turning up on our little Island and making it home for themselves. This week on the news I heard that the Great Spotted Woodpecker has started to breed in Ireland. Before this only a few of these birds were spotted in Ireland and now they have been spotted in more locations in Ireland and seem to be staying for longer periods of time possibly to breed. They can be heard drumming (tapping at the wood) in woodlands in the spring time. Hopefully they are here to stay! For more information visit the BirdWatch Ireland Website where you can find out about the Great Spotted Woodpecker and all our birds here in Ireland.
