Artist's Description

An exciting sighting for me. I’ve always wanted to see a hoopoe -Upupa epops – in the wild since I was a seven year old and belonged to the Young Ornithologists’ Club, the children’s section of the RSPB.
It’s an exotic looking bird that is the size of a mistle thrush. It has a pinkish-brown body, striking black and white wings, a long black downcurved bill, and a long pinkish-brown crest which it raises when excited. It does not breed in the UK.

This summer, after a whole day’s safari in the wilds of the Coto Donana, in Spain with no sightings whatsoever, who should appear by the hotel pool while I was having a pre-dinner aperitif? You guessed it…my hoopoe!!
