Hoopoe: After ticking off my first BBP down on Burton Marsh myself and Tom Marshall decided on having a look at this Hoopoe in Conwy.

This is probably the same bird I saw a few months back over the way in Rhyl, but this time I got a lot closer!
It has been suggested that the bird has been looking a bit sick and won't last the winter, but looking at it feeding underneath the caravans and flying between the sea wall and grass verge it looked fine to me.

I like this picture, Hoopoe look like an exotic sexy bird, strange to see within the backdrop of the A55 and the green traffic sign.
