News of 5 Bee-eaters seen next to North Somercotes had been jumping in the car again & hitting the coast. The Bee-eaters had been present since at least yesterday evening but news didn't reach the ears of the birding world until today. Seen at 3pm, I was on site from c4.15pm but 4 hours of scanning the area produced none of these rainbow birds. Plenty of birder coverage in the surrounding areas but still no sign. I did however have one colourful bird fly over, a drake Mandarin Duck! Barn Owl also seen.
