Notts Bee Eaters

Friday. Made the short trip over for this great live show, it was only 29 miles from Grantham, traveling on the Melton route. Up to seven European Bee-eaters had been seen in the quarry near East Leake. Five were on show today, giving great views, constantly flying out to catch bumble bees, occasional dragonflies and butterflies. Two birds were seen copulating more than once. It’s a great spectacle, even though the viewing point is a fair distance away. I would urge anyone to go for a memorable day out. Parking is a fiver a car and everything is well organised.
