Bee Eaters at East Leake Nottinghamshire

A day off work gave me the opportunity to travel up the M1 where a party of Bee-eaters have set up home and look like trying to produce some little Bee-eaters with a little luck.

The RSPB has set up safe viewing with the help of a local farmer and the quarry owners. We paid the £5 car park fee and walked across the road where we managed scope views of the birds siting in a distant Ash tree. We then walked the footpath to get closer views along with the hundred or so other birders on site.

We enjoyed great views of six of the seven birds as they flew out from the Ash to collect a constant supply of bees and dragon flies and they seemed to achieve 100% hit rate.

WOW!…..JUST GREAT BIRDS TO WATCH

After a few hours we left for home with a very short stop at Kelham Bridge where we failed to give a year tick but who’s complaining.
