Woodpecker Thwarts Sparrowhawk

This sparrowhawk landed on top of the wooden post looking for its next meal, which was hiding immediately below it and out of its line of sight.

The lesser spotted woodpecker remained perfectly still for over a minute while the menacing hawk swivelled its head looking for it.

The woodpecker finally got away safely.
