Erindoors brought me a Terry's Chocolate Orange for my weekend.

Is it a Hoopoe?

If this was taken in Europe, then I agree, Hoopoe in the top of the middle tree.

If it was taken in Australia - it could be a Kookaburra :.

Ha ha! Spot on Ian! Taken on my recent holiday in the Algarve. I watched it fly to the tree and just took a shot in the hope of getting something from the image to put on this thread. See how I think of you all even when on me hols!

Thanks for your guesses everyone!

I hope you are going to share that Chocolate Orange Peter?
