North-west African bird spotted on Kimberley island

A rare sighting of the Eurasian Hoopoe bird in Australia has been captured on an island off Western Australia's northern coastline.

The Department of Parks and Wildlife has recorded vision of the African bird on Aldolphus Island, two kilometres north of Wyndham.

It's only the third time the bird has been spotted in Australia.

It was first recorded in Australia in 2011 at Roebuck Plains Roadhouse in the west Kimberley. Last year it was spotted at Galiwinku on Elcho Island in the Northern Territory.
