The little Woodpidgeon was built as a response to the Air Ministry's Light Aeroplane Competition of 1924. Westland also produced a monoplane entry, the Widgeon which proved superior and as a consequence only two prototypes were built, the second of which was larger in an attempt to improve the performance.
