A five hour round trip to Poole in Dorset this morning was worth the effort with my first look a Hoopoe on British soil. I first connected with this exotic looking bird 33 years ago, on my first trip to Spain with my parents. I am as happy today seeing this bird as I was then! Everything about this bird adds to its unique character; from its onomatopoeic call, its punked out 'hair do' and butterfly like flight! Rare Bird Alert...
