Déjà vu, Blue-cheeked Bee-eaters

August 27th last year - I posted BCBs at Besor Reservoir. Today I stopped by for a quick look-see and was greeted by four BCBs flying over the water. I spotted several more perching on the pumping station fence and as I approached I flushed (accidentally) many more. Long story short, the original four plus 11 others. When I returned to the car I saw several sitting in the same tree as last year. Also, the first Kingfisher of the autumn, the Marsh Harrier is still here and the Purple Swamphen was swimming with two chicks.


Joined by a Rufous Bush-robin.

And a final one from the car park.
