The Gathering has Begun – Yay!

The Annual Gathering of the rainbow bee-eaters has begun. They are flying north from their breeding grounds in our south-west to rest and eat up; they are preparing themselves and their new young for the long flight north to New Guinea and beyond, where they will spend the winter.

It’s always a joy to see the flocks of them, growing bigger by the day, wheel past as we walk through the bush nearby. Their calls are very special; actually everything about them is very special!
