On behalf of Barb who sent in an email:-

It flew over me a few days ago. Long wing span, definite woodpecker head very pointy. Black in color with one white circle on the underside of the wing. That was very visible as high as it was.

Can anyone identify ?

Hi Barb. I would guess it was a Great spotted woodpecker. They have white rounded patches on the inside of their underwing. Best wishes, yan
