Bee-Eaters Visit The Quinta Along With Cirl Buntings

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestmail

I was sitting enjoying the end of the hot sunny day when a large group of European Bee-Eaters came to hunt in an area next to the Quinta. I grabbed the camera and hid behind a bush, I wasn’t as close as I needed to be, but with a bright purple T-shirt on, it wouldn’t have been a good idea. I did manage to get a male coming into land next to his female partner. The early evening setting sun lit up his wings beautifully.

I have noticed that the Bee-Eaters tend to follow a loose pattern throughout the day, so if this is going to be a common occurrence then I will be camo-ing up and hiding closer.

Once they left, I noticed a pair of Cirl Buntings and grabbed a shot of this male sitting on the wire.
