Yes, cool indeed.  I like to point out that living in the Washington DC suburbs (technically Bethesda Md, inside the Beltway) I found 6 woodpecker species within 5kms in the middle of a freezing winter

Woodpeckers are so cool, even though they are shy you can usually get good views when they climb bare trunks. In Switzerland you have the Lesser, Middle and Greater Spotted Woodpeckers (and others), with the Middle not present in the UK.

My brother, who lives in Switzerland, sent us this photo taken at the
birdfeeder in his garden. On several visits to him, we've never managed
to get more than a fleeting glimpse one, as they're pretty shy.
