A full frame capture of a Juvenile Great Spotted Woodpecker (Dendrocopos major) making a very good job of emulating a Bittern with that head carriage - all that is missing is a reed bed background! Taken in the garden a couple of days ago.These youngsters are amazing to watch, as they spend relatively long periods immobile, as they scan their surroundings.
