Hoopoe

Thursday 10th May 2007
After being out of the county for a couple of days, in York, I got back in time to take a trip to Wotton-under-Edge to see the Hoopoe. Despite getting soaked in the persistent rain, it was fantastic to see this lovely bird, my first in the UK let alone the county. My first view of it was feeding on one of the fairways, but it soon took cover beneath one of a group of leylandii trees, where it stayed out of the increasingly heavy rain (record photo: Paul Masters).
