The Hoopoe have been with us for a while before I decided to go and see it on the 8th of October. The weather was very changeable and at the point of getting in the car it was actually drizzling. When I arrived in Collingham there were about 20 birders all pointing their cameras at the small object on the cricket pitch. The small object could not give a damn, it just did its own thing. Sometimes flying up into a tree, but only for a few seconds and then back it came to the adorning crowds.

Below is the sound of a Eurasian Hoopoe.
