European Bee Eater: This had to be one of my easiest and most awesome twitches. Almost as soon as I arrived I connected with my first UK Bee Eater and what a glorious bird it was!
I headed over to the watch point overlooking the nest site, and although from here you get some great views it is a tad distant and rubbish for pictures.
As per Rare Bird Network UK - CA8 1SY. Site open 8:00am-8:00pm, £5 parking. (well worth the dosh, good birds, great cause).
