Great spotted woodpecker (juvenile)

Great spotted woodpecker (juvenile).

Same day I saw the beautiful honey buzzards, I saw this woodpecker waiting for its parents to bring food. But the parent-birds saw me standing, and didn't make any effort to return to the nest. I waited for half an hour, with my camera focussed on the nest, hoping I could take a picture of the juvenile being fed. Finally I gave up. Better luck next time.
