Another top find by local recorder Brian Stone: "Arriving to do my WeBS count at Stibbington this morning, I flushed a Hoopoe from the entrance track. A year and ten days since the one I saw at Elton Furze!
"The bird is returning to feed alongside the hardstanding near the start of the track near the Hall. Coming into the village from the A1, park carefully before the track and approach with caution, staying back from the Private sign. Grid ref: TL087987."

This bird is a bit different to our usual Yellow Wagtails that breed in the area (subspecies flavissima). Its very pale head looks like the eastern European Blue-headed race, beema (known as Sykes's Wagtail), though it could perhaps be a flavissima/flava hybrid.
Yellow Wagtail races merge into each other so there may be no definitive answer!
