On Sunday the GSPCA had a poorly Great Spotted Woodpecker brought in.

Yvonne Chauvel Senior Animal Care Assistant said “On Sunday we had a Great Sotted Woodppecker that has been called Woody.”

“Woody was found on a patio and it is likely he flew into a window which caused a concusion of some sort.”

“Not all the wildlife need weeks or months of care and after 2 days of rehab we decided itoday was a good day to release him back to the wild where he was found in Torteval.”
