Golden Oriole

Received from Sharon Bennet, today.

"Hi Lyndon just recently returned from Symi on 21st may and on our walk from the harbour towards Emborio in the trees to the left of us, i saw a Golden Oriole. It was bright yellow and of the correct size. Unfortunately I only saw it from the rear in flight, but it was close enough to identify. At the time I kept calling it a Hoopoe which of course looks nothing like but after checking the bird book on return knew instantly. Hope you also are lucky with this one. many thanks, Sharon"
