|a pair of Shoveler in front of the hide at NDC|
|plus a Heron dropped in|
|a Buzzard over|
After I got home I was a bit miffed to find out there had been a Hoopoe in a garden in Beverley, I cursed my luck again, however the bird was still present this morning and showing well, fingers crossed it remained so till late afternoon when I would get a chance to go for it, it did but there was still a tense half hour or so, I arrived at the same time as a pretty hefty thunderstorm with hail, 15 mins and it had passed over but the bird had also fled the storm and it was another 15-20 mins before it returned, when it did it was just incredible, such a confiding bird I took more than 500 photos, here are a few.
|a bit of bizarre behaviour, it threw itself to the ground half|
rolling over onto its back, don't know what that was about
