Nice picture. If you are very lucky you can see one of these in the southern counties of the UK in the summer. There was at least one on Skomer last summer.

This is a lovely shot, Sandy, with all that beautiful bird's attributes captures and a nice plain bg.
My first sighting of these was in Egypt.

This bird is a Hoopoo I think.
They used to fly around my house sometimes when I lived in Malta.
