Blue-cheeked Bee- eater in Kent

Blue-cheeked Bee-eater in Kent and where am I?
No not in Kent, unfortunately owing to a pulled back muscle could not drive there!

But if you look here you can see photo's taken by Tony Morris. The bird was found by a local patch worker and they id it together!

Grrr would have been a great bird for my Kent List as well as UK life list!

That was yesterday!

Will now make myself a little happier by filling in my Bubo list for the year as I can add some birds!

Looks like episode 2 of the hunt for a photographic session with kingfishers will be happening on Monday!
I shall also be cross examining every wader seen just in case!

Just been reminded that I havent blogged for ages!

Brief note -I will put more details on when i have some time, interviewing all day today so will be another day!

1. Nightjars and a roding Woodcock in Surrey
2. Twitching - a visit to Norfolk / Brecks involved a slight diversion to Welney for a Tern
3. A Scotland visit which turned into a couple of twitches - and a collection of specialities - not the clean sweep but hey not bad for a long w/e!
4 Zip into Kent

Still wondering where that Royal Tern went......
