Hoopoe influx in Cornwall

This Hoopoe was seen today near Kea Church, Truro.  It arrived last Thursday and has been quite content to feed solely in a secluded, private garden.  Approximately 12 birds have been found in Cornwall during the last week, mostly from sites west of Truro.  The weather last week had been extremely warm with south or south-easterly winds and no doubt played a major part in this influx.

Many thanks to Brian Toms and R G Martin for allowing access.
