Trentishoe, Exmoor – Sunday 29th

Four Bee-eaters flew south-west, low over our heads, as we walked back over the flanks of Trentishoe Common after doing some surveying for the National Trust. As always, heard before we saw them, and a fleeting moment, with the loose migrating flock gone from view within a minute. Totally unforgettable though! Also 13 passage Red Kites, in the space of about an hour or so, thermalling over the hill in ones, twos and threes before drifting off high to the east-north-east.

Apologies for the late post. Frustratingly without 4G for 36 hours…
