Unusual? Or am I just ignorant?

Would someone be so kind as to identify the ULM in the attached image. To me it looked unusual and intertesting but I'm not very good at modern aeroplanes - which I assume it to be - and so I've failed in my attempts to identify it. It arrived at Ch√Ętellerault, the Sunday before last, whilst I was standing alongside the runway photographing the departees and I forgot completely, when I was leaving, to go back to the hard standing, on which it had been parked, to take a closer look and maybe ascertain its identity.

Many thanks, Propstrike. I'm sure that there is when you know what you are looking for!!!!!

The rear fuselage of the ULM which I photographed seems much longer than in the images that I have found on the net of Hummel Birds but, equally, there seem to be several variations on the basic theme. Can anyone further assist a poor ignoramus - at least when it comes to modern, non French or British ultralights!
