Bee-eaters in Dorset

To anyone not excited by rare and beautiful birds, the news that I heard the distinctive call of one of these scarce migrants, after coming out of the sea in Swanage on friday afternoon,  this will not be of the slightest interest. I just can’t help sharing the story, because I find it so hard to believe it myself. It was only because I had heard so many of these birds in Portugal a fortnight before that I recognised their distinctive call.
