In answer to the earlier post, a Hoopoe once spent a long period in Barnstaple through the winter - must have been 15 years ago at least! I don't have the year or dates to hand but I'm sure they are in a Devon Bird report. Also a Hoopoe has been present in Staffordshire for the last few weeks, so this record is certainly on the cards. Might find time to look for it myself before the New Year!
