Hi - walking around Dryburgh, Scottish Borders this morning and came across this wonderful looking bird. Best described as having a yellow beak and pied body. Quite happy in its surroundings and had the flight pattern of a woodpecker. I don't think it is a juvenile woodpecker but then again......what go you think?
I'd welcome your thoughts. Apologies for the lack of quality on the photo!
