Default Too many?

I am not sure if there is still enough interest in going ahead with posting 'What is it' pics etc , maybe time to put it to bed, we shall see.

In the meantime anyone want to guess what is in the pic. The photo was taken in Portugal so not a UK native.

Could the bird be some sort of magpie?

Doh!! Hoopoe was my first impression. Purely by deduction from the previous posts and my Peterson guide, I'll guess at Azure-winged Magpie...
