Green woodpecker

Green Woodpecker, Picus viridis, single male bird on grass, Worcestershire, April 2017. Canon 1dx. 800mm. 1/1000th at f8. 1600 iso. From a hide.

I have never had much success with Green woodpeckers on the ground. I have done them on the nest, but rarely feeding on the grass. Last spring I got lucky and did them well for the first time and again this spring. I was actually waiting for a buzzard to come in when this bird landed.
