Cranham     The HOOPOE heard calling on Cranham Common at 7:20am but not seen, first showed at 9:25am at SO898129 and remained throughout until early evening at least but can be elusive at times. Please park sensibly in the village and surrounding area as parking is very limited. (MK/Les Ditchburn). Pic by Paul Taylor.Hoopoe 020617

About The Gloster Birder

My name is Mike King and have lived all my life in Gloucestershire. I am happiest birding around Frampton but I especially love Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. I have birded all over Europe, in the U.S.A. and Canada, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Costa Rica, Belize, Mexico, Dominican Republic, The Gambia, Cape Verde, South Africa and most recently Zimbabwe and Botswana.
