Hip Hip HOOPOE

By orts
Finally got a photo of the rare visitor to Portland Bill last sunday, I came across a lot of birders and bird photographers all tryiing to get a glimpse of this spectacular bird on the Saturday but it was to far away to get a photo and carried on with my walk.
I went out for a walk again on sunday and it was in the field just behind the Portland Bird Observatory for a short period before flying off. (But the best was yet to come)
