The pink birds have gone and the white ones have moved into the tree.
Beautiful birds but they really damage the trees.
First day of summer today.
After the hay was cut, the raptors began circling.
There are so many raptors around at the minute. I guess they know it’s time to cut the hay. They circle round looking for a meal.
The green colored bee-eater has some friends that appear to be more blue colored. They are very striking.
The day before I found the Bee-eater pictured in the last post I went out looking for photo opportunities and took these of bee-eaters less than a kilometre away from my house. They have been returning after a winter absence and I love to see them flitting around flashing their amazing wing colours. I wonder if these are related to the one I found. They look identical to me. My foundling has survived another day, but still doesn’t seem to be able to fly. He’s safe in my glass house.
My friend is still here in this same tree.
Him, her and their unoccupied house. I’m not sure which is which.
