Hoopoe in East Preston

Thanks for Jackie Pilcher for this photo of a Hoopoe. Its usually found in Africa and Eurasia, but occasionally along the South Coast. Apparently there were only 9 sightings of it in the UK last year and 5 the year before. The bird has been foraging for food several times in her garden. The picture also got featured on BBC South Today.
