I followed up on a message today from Suzanne about a possible Bee-eater. Sounded interesting and a late lunch sojourn was taken. After a while no joy and it looked like it was time to head back to the PC screen when I heard a ‘puuurp’ call, turned round and saw a Bee-eater flying over. There was certainly a Bee-eater!
It was around Breasclate School and Hall, but also venturing down the road to Callanish going ‘inland’ as well as far as the Gift Shop. It was still around at 6pm at least.
Probably the second for the Hebrides with one a couple of years ago moving through the island chain from Barra to Dalbeg
Managed to get the news out quickly so Tony Marr and Bob Wemyss connected as well as some interested bemused locals. Thanks to all involved and Mr and Mrs MacIver for being so accommodating.
