Black (Woodpecker) Friday

It's 'that' Friday so we thought of something black! This Black Woodpecker was photographed by Hugh on one of our Hungary bird photography workshops. We'll be back there in February and April 2015 - all the details are here. We currently have just a couple of spaces left on the April trip so come and join us for the opportunity to take great images like this!
