Hi Gerard! First of all thank you for arranging us the guide; we had a great time in Hortobagy...and great birds of course!
As for the woodpecker I'd say White-backed: reddish crown, no black rim above the eye (as seen on Syrian, Great Spot), some clean black streaking on the breast. Also quite longish and slim head and bill.
Got it?

Cheers
Domen
