Hoopoes










The weather has been so miserable there has not been much to photograph lately, but, it has encouraged the hoopoes to feed near to the house as we have been inside more than usual. They have had one brood this year and are now on the second and are flying backwards and forward with food at a great rate and working so hard. A parents lot is a tough one. LOL

I've seen them very occasionally and never heard them until, I think, late last week really early. A bit like a cuckoo, but deeper?
