    Default First post and Hoopoe

    Hello all,
    Thought I'd share this find as my first post on this forum and site.
    Acting on a tip off from a collegue, I spent my lunch hour on the Surrey/Hants border watching this very wary Hoopoe, even with a 600mm lens, these images are a crop hence the poor quality, chuffed with the spot though

    Well done Mike and an excellent first post. I'm envious.

    I'll copy this to the Photo section if you don't mind, as that's where people will look for images.

    Shame I'm busy over the next couple of days, I'd have loved to go and have a look.
