    This is a Great spotter woodpecker. It's been in the village for over a month now. Apparently they are common in the UK, but not so much in north west Scotland, so it has been a real treat seeing one here. It's been in the newspapers about it! So I was quite happy when I realised the little guy has moved into my garden :)
