Jewel in the Mist

A particularly grotty day weather wise was brightened up by an always beautiful BEE-EATER which was found just behind Northrepps Church late morning. The bird stuck faithfully to a hedgerow, seemingly sheltered from the breeze and drizzle and more importantly, one that was sheltered enough for Bees! This was my first Bee-eater sighting in Norfolk, and only my second in Britain. Unfortunately I am in the middle of a digiscoping crisis due to breakage of my camera adaptor, so I couldn't get any shots, but thanks to Rob Lee for allowing the use of his to make this post a little more interesting.
