I like this pose of the kite with it's wings spread out. Looks really nice, Shalu.

Thank you very much, Mike.

I have just read that there are reports of bee-eaters nesting in the UK this year, so your wish might come true !

I think most years there are reports of 1 or 2 pairs nesting and the odd 1 here and there. There were a couple about 250 miles from me last week or so but I didn't see any nesting reports, where did you read that?

It was mentioned by a very well informed Greek birder in a Facebook group

The first is not a quality I normally would show, but I love the situation...! The male had been sitting on the branch for 19 minutes, while it cleaned its feathers, scratched its stomach etc etc what a man has to do now a days….;o)) Then suddenly the female pushed him off and when I saw him 10 minutes later, his beak were full of dirt, so She had send him to work….;o))

Killer shot. Can you share with us the circumstances that allowed that great image?
