I haven't seen Bee-eaters in the UK since 2002, so when I spotted news of 7 birds in Nottinghamshire on the Birdguides website, I knew I had to travel down to see them. Today, we had a family trip and got great views of 4 of the 7 birds as they flew around the site near East Leake. Here's my best attempt!!


The RSPB had set up a car park and viewing facilities, and I bought this pin badge to supplement the views I'd had!


Whilst there, we also got good views of several Ringlet butterflies, including this individual with its wings held open, not something I've seen very often.


Year List update:
