Bee Eater

Fabulous colours but difficult to catch in flight.

Another bird found in Extremadura. The country roads don’t have much traffic and if you drive along slowly with your windows down you may well hear their distinctive song.

Roller

Rollers too were found in the Extremadura region in Spain. The nest boxes were put up specially but although quite a success for the Rollers a good number of boxes were claimed by Jackdaws and Lesser Kestrels.
