Quite rare Hoopoe on the cricket field in the UK

For about a week now there has been a Hoopoe on the Collingham Cricket field about 3 miles from my house. This is pretty rare for the UK and even rarer for this far North. I resisted the temptation of popping down over the weekend as it was wet and I knew there would be loads of people there. Yesterday it was sunny so I popped down and spent an hour sitting on the field with about 30 others. I went home with wet and muddy trousers but it was worth it. The Hoopoe doesn't seem to be bothered by the dozens of people and at one stage came to within 8 feet of me.

There are a few more on flickr.
