Woodpeckers and loggers

We went out into the forests in NE Hungary over Easter to check a few sites. Sadly, we came across some recent logging in one good forest for owls and woodpeckers, and it is spring! Logging in the breeding season is not good at all, and probably illegal, too. For example, this woodpecker hole looked new, freshly excvated, but the tree was cut. Thankfully, it is doubtful that the hole was occupied, probably just being made, as it is still early days, so the birds would have moved on and tried elsewhere.
