Hoopoes--Riet's favourite bird--- are quite stronlgly migratory, and clearly 
can fly much better than ot looks lkike at first sight. In Tromsoe, at 70* N in 
N. Norway, a country where no hoopoes ever nest, we see one or two almost every 
autumn, probably Siberian birds. They all perish, sadly, when frost makes it 
impossible for them to feed on their bottom animals by drilling.
