Great Spotted Woodpecker – feeding young

Its a great time of year for photographing birds, particulary at the woodland edge. I have great spotted woodpeckers viditing my woodland bird hide area,  and get to see and photograph the adults feeding the young woodpeckers.

There is a lot of noise as the young woodpecker gets very excited as its mother brings the food.

I am a full time wildlife photographer living in the Scottish Borders. I do most of my photography in Scotland in the Highlands and Islands as well as the Scottish Borders. I also travel to Northern Scandinavia, North America, Canada and South Africa to photograph birds and mammals. I organize workshops and deliver illustrated talks on birds and wildlife. My work has been featured in many magazines and publication and I have written just one book so far entitled “Wildlife through my Viewfinder” which is a collection of photographs and the stories behind them. I hope you enjoy this blog and website. I will try to update it as often as possible. I have recently started a newsletter, if you would like to receive it please sign up using the button on the front page of my website
