I was planning on visiting Seaton today, so when I saw a tweet from Steve saying that yesterday's Hoopoe
was showing well near to Lower Bruckland Ponds I decided to go and have a look and perhaps get some better photos this time. This was my third Hoopoe
in twelve days and you know what? I haven't seen a Wheatear
yet this year. Yes really!
Feeding on leatherjackets.
Down the hatch!
Nearly got it. Good one of the tail though.
I've never managed to get a nice Hoopoe flight shot.
Perhaps I'll get one next time.
And for anyone who hasn't seen a Hoopoe in the field, it's probably a bit smaller than you thought.
Well done Karen three Hoopoes in twelve days,I might get that in twelve months.
Thanks John. Just total chance!
