Is that a Bradshaw's Hoopoe ?
That's Bradshaw's Hoopoe, but Watkins has got one too. So has Ponsonby. And that's just in this village. Thinks 'e's something special but he's about as cool as Baloo bear dancing in a grass skirt.
You surprise me. These other Hoopoes - are they full hoopoes or half hoopoes ? I have in mind the famous and unusual Hoopoe Hump of some years ago when a considerable number of full hoopoe cocks nesting near Glossop, focused their amorous intentions on a large flock of Orpington hens, this action resulting in several score of Hoopingtons, or Orpoes. I'd be most interested if anyone can cast light.Yours etc.,Alison Squatt [Mrs., 39]
Nobody cast light. That's why those lascivious birds were able to carry on their carnal activities undetected.Very exciting, too.
Eggbert Eggebert indeed ! I think its about time people started using their real names around here !Drumhead Threepscreedler.
Go on... you want to say SOMETHING, don't you? Post under a made-up name if you're shy!
