It's 1000hrs and already I have had 5 Hoopoes over my head. We currently have high northerly winds which may be holding them back in situ. Makes life worthwhile here when you get migrants of such a high calibre.
The Army Ornithological Society (AOS) provides the Army's focal point for ornithological issues
by getting involved in conservation work, bird counts and other MOD and civilian schemes through field
trips, overseas expeditions and scientific studies.
