Down in our local woodland copse we often see, and hear Great Spotted Woodpeckers; but I was surprised today to see a Green Woodpecker pecking merrily away at the soil bank near a hedge just outside our living room window. Apparently this bird loves to eat ants, so as it was a male he might have been feasting on our local Lasius nests of L. flavus or L. niger?
