Seen feeding on south of Allsmoor Field before flying off and landing in the NE corner of the field. Will likely be disturbed when the local dog walkers come out! Some poor quality photos taken. SU887687.

News to add to the saga, my mother's dog walker friend was told by a man that he saw a Hoopoe at Woodford Park this morning, on the 'no swimming' sign in the middle of the pond. I cannot vouch for the authenticity of this 3rd hand report, but at least it's close to the original sighting.
