Geoff we have 3 Woodpeckers in the UK. The Great Spotted is the most common and can be found in most local parks and woods/forests. They are loud and can easily be located.
The Green Woodpecker tends to like more open spaces, I see them a lot at Grave yards/Cemetries, again they are very noisy.
Our 3rd Woodpecker is the most rarest. The Lesser Spotted. It is similar to your Downy Woodpecker. They are very small. I Know many bird watchers of many years who have never seen one. They are in only a very few locations in the UK and nest and feed very high up in trees. They are normally pushed out by the much larger Great Spotted who often take the young from their nests and even eat them.

I would often visit this site to see Woodpeckers in the Summer Months. When I went there this morning their regular Stumps and dead branches were overgrown and completely covered. I spent 20 minutes clearing the bracken around them and then I set my stool up 20 metres away and poured myself a Chicken and Mushroom soup. Before I even got the chance to take a sip this beautiful Male Great Spotted Woodpecker turned up. He looked around, straight at me and it was almost as if he was thanking me. He stayed for 2-3 minutes and then landed on another clearing I did and did exactly the same.
I reckon he went back to tell his girlfriend and then she gave me a visit. What I thought was going to be a cold long wait turned out to be a quick flying visit. I had enough time then to go home and have a bacon sandwich.

Note: the EXIF info for my recent images shows "Sony FE 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 GM OSS". I'm actually shooting an FE 200-600mm f/5.6-6.3 G OSS lens. The POTN gear database needs to be updated.

Thank you Martin very kind of you to say. My Mum bought me up on Oxtail, leek and Potato in Slow Cookers, When I left home I said I would never have Oxtail or Leek again. I like my Chicken & Mushroom along with a Milton Brow or M&S Pork Pie.
