In Brittany near La Torche and St Guénolé in the Bay d'Audierne the Bee-eaterss in the colony there are now returning back after a poor year last year
with not much to feed on fue to the poor weather. Also in Brittany a flock of 35 or so Bee-eaters were seen yesterday migrating north. And at Etretat in northern France Bee-eaters were also contacted yesterday not too far from the UK! So look out now in the UK to see Bee-eaters and other late migrants pouring through here in the Channel including a big passage of waders and the odd Squacco Heron returning plus a movement of raptors with later migrant raptors now turning up here in the Channel includding Honey Buzzard
and Montagues Harrier which breed in Normandy in reasonable numbers.
