one of the best views we had of the Hoopoe as it feed in the open on the path
a rare view as it had its crest fully erect
some record footage of the Hoopoe feeding on the path taken by my brother Ephraim and edited by myself
good view of the buff orange mantle followed by first thin dark brown/black bar on mantle indicating adult male
one of the first views we had of the Hoopoe perched in a dead tree
Also on the Downs as we trekked around searching for the Hoopoe (at times when it was more elusive) we came across 2 Hobbies, 3 Swift and 2 Kestrels. The Downs also had large flocks of Linnet and Jackdaws in the neighbouring fields.
