Hoopoe (Upupa epops)

STATUS AT LONGHAM LAKES

Very rare vagrant, with just 1 record:

Hoopoe (Chris Parnell)

Hoopoe, Longham Lakes, December 2010 (Chris Parnell)

1. A bird that turned up on 25th November 2010 and stayed until last seen on 12th December has to be one of the most bizarre records ever at this site. It spent most of its time on the bank on the east side of Longham Reservoir South, and was much admired. Photos suggested it was of the eastern race.
2. 1 on 9th July 2015 (George Green). Where had that come from?
