It's a hoopoe
There have been a few sightings in the UK this year.
Usually quite rare to see them here.
"He who kills sow with piglets empties the forest of boar" My neighbours dad on new years eve 2011.
I've seen them in Spain but never here yet. Very strange looking birds.
I saw one in Brussels when I was a boy, which is next door if you're a bird.
"Wishy washy hand-wringing diversified all encompassing liberal"
One of my favourite birds.
Absurdly named whichever way you look at it: hoopoe, or Upupa epops.
Because, when it sings, it goes 'poop poop poop'
