On behalf of Alison who sent in an email:-

This young bird comes to our bird table and eats seeds and drinks water. He has some backwards facing claws and occasionally hangs onto the fat ball feeder. He's about the size of a starling. 

We are thinking juvenile Greater Spotted Woodpecker ?? 

We live in a pretty rural part of Herefordshire, surrounded by farmland with some woodland.
