Heatwaves of Hoopoes


Spain isn’t hot – at least, not Singapore hot (though it doesn’t take much to not be Singapore hot) – but in the mid-afternoon sun, the much-familiar heatwaves abound nevertheless. It was through those that we spotted this hoopoe, some hundred metres in front of us, hopping about on the path. The last time I saw one was halfway across the world, in the Lodhi Gardens in Delhi – proving that hoopoes, like heatwaves, are a truly global phenomena.
