Hoopoe at Whiteford

Hoopoe (c) Rein Part
Rein Part was very fortunate to find a Hoopoe along the new coastal footpath at Whiteford last Saturday. Even better was that he was able to digiscope it, enabling him to share his good fortune. The bird was feeding avidly on the grass near the clump of Monterey Cypress at SS448955.

Saw the smew on 3 occasions on same morning as rob at wwt. Was flighty and moved between the pool in front of kingfisher hide and the lagoon. Had super views as it took a drink and spent some time uner the trees on far bank,
