[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Hoopoe is a bizarre creation with crazy black and white banding across its wings and tail, an eccentric black-tipped crest, long, down-curved bill and an orange coloured body. Its dramatic plumage is best seen when the bird flies with floppy, rounded, fingered wings, flicking like a big moth.

Breeds in parks, orchards, copses and gardens.

A regular overshooting migrant, mainly on the south coast and East Anglia during spring. Coastal migration sites such as Portland Bill in Dorset are the best places. Occasionally, individuals winter and others have bred eg in Mongomeryshire in 1996.

Widespread and locally common in central and southern Europe, particularly abundant in southern Spain.

Four pairs bred in 1977 in Avon, Somerset, Surrey and Sussex respectively but, although a pair displayed in Suffolk in 1990, there were no further records of confirmed breeding until 1996 when a pair bred in Montgomerieshire.

670-900,000 breeding pairs throughout much of southern Europe but rare in Germany and absent from Scandinavia.
