I guess Great Spotted Woodpeckers will travel as far as they need to get food, especially in the winter. My 'go to' ornithologist friend has a great dislike of them, so I daren't risk asking her for more info, but I'll see what I can find from the other birdy people I know.

We have had two different females, and at least one male visiting our peanut feeders in the past week. Quite a lot of drumming going on as well.

SC, yes, black and white mainly with red bits here and there (depending on age and sex).

Thanks Buzzy, I know lesser spotted have been seen on bird feeders near our woods, so we think they probably live mainly in the woods, although we have never seen them, but didn't think greater would be on them. We hear them a lot in the woods, and sometimes see them. They mainly feed on insects, so didn't even know they would eat nuts.
