Yay! The Bee Eaters Are Back!

Yesterday I heard my first Nightingale, but today I’ve heard the first Bee Eater of the year. They are late, they always appear on the 1st April in this area, but they are 4 days late, probably due to the weather and of course the wind that we’ve had!

Last year, they even nested on our land, so I’ll bee-keeping (see what I did there!) a keen eye on them and expect many photos.

Here are a few from last year and below a video of them attempting to build nests before deciding this was not a suitable location.
