After my second attempt I finally found the HOOPOE. I first went looking for it on Saturday afternoon but no luck, There was 3 others looking for it but nothing.
Today Pam and I was going shopping and before we did I went to have another look, I got there just before half past two. For some reason I didn't stop at the first gap I went straight to the second one.
There was a young girl near the fence through the second gap hoping to get a few shots of it. I asked her if it had been seen, and she said"No not that I know of".
She left shortly after I arrived, she said that she was going to take a walk further on. So I got settled and it wasn't until then had I realised just how hot the sun was today. I began scanning the field up and down for ages, and then at 15:00 I found it It was feeding over the far side of the field where there are 2 small tree's, too far for any pictures. I stayed watching the Hoopoe for half an hour.The trouble is when looking at a really nice bird leaving isn't easy. Hopefully it will stay around, it has been here for quite a while now so why not?
The last time I saw a Hoopoe was at Lenham Heath. on 1/5/2010.
