That's an "Upupa epops" - a Hoopoe, they breed in hollow trees where the faeces of their young create an awful smell that chases even the hungriest marten away!
I love this photograph, A. Aziz!!!

Janelle, Lianne and Carolyn , thank you very much for your comments.

Birdie, thank you for the information you added about the Hoopoe. Some additional information about Hoopoes: They live in parts of Africa, Europe and Asia. They also breed in old houses if there are suitable places for the nests.

Thank you again all of you. #29908
