Is this a lesser spotted woodpecker?

In the copse I heard a green woodpecker yaffle - at the beginning of the video on the link below. Then a woodpecker drummed - perhaps 30 seconds later. Although I know Green's do drum this is not in keeping with the descriptions in my books. I think it might be a lesser spotted as I didn't instinctively think great spotted which I've heard often - any views? It drummed several times, and always a long run like this. Only got one on tape so I've spliced it in 3 times. Sorry it's a bit faint amidst all that hiss.

Any comments welcome.
