None of the local colonies have established yet, but there is the odd occasional Bee-Eater flying around. I suspected this cold and wet spring would delay them slightly. I remember from 2018 when we had a lot of rain in February and April, they were 2 weeks late, they are currently 9 days late.
As for photographing the ones that are here, well the light is also terrible, but here is a quick shot that I grabbed this morning of one flying quite high.
UPDATE : Since this morning the noise of these amazing birds has been increasing so it seems they are returning in numbers now. More tomorrow…..
Hopefully over the coming days the colonies will start to re-establish and the skies will be full of them.
The website is currently undergoing a big change by moving my portfolio from Flickr, the European Bee-Eater portfolio is already complete and in testing, so if you can’t wait for some great shots, you can take a sneak peak HERE.
