Lesser Spotted Woodpecker Audio

  • Lesser Spotted Woodpecker Drumming and calls caught on sound file 

I've never been able to really study a Lesser Spotted Woodpecker in any great detail before. Usual sightings have been brief one-offs, but this Spring, a local territory seems to be very reliable for drumming and calling birds (even though I haven't actually seen the birds yet!). Managed to grab some recordings of Drumming and the alarm call..

(Call on the sonogram looks to be the constant calls at ~5KHZ)
