Quiz woodpecker 19

Here is the latest quiz woodpecker photo. Here is a clue: the bird low down on the right is a Great Reed Warbler Acrocephalus arundinaceus and the bird top-left is the woodpecker. That bird is obviously a Dendrocopos species, being mainly "black and white" (a so-called "pied" woodpecker) and there are only 5 Dendrocopos species in Europe... so it should not be too difficult to narrow it down!

I think is a Great Spotted Woodpecker. The red undertail color is very intense and I can see also lots of white on the tail sides. I don't think is one of the other species, because is too big.
