(Eurasian) Hoopoe

The stunning Hoopoe, one of the most striking and distinctive birds. It likes to spend time on the ground feeding and winters in Africa. This one was resting up before it moved from the Cyprus coastline. Some birds remain local but many move on up into Southern and Central Europe. Rarely seen in the U.K
