European Bee-eater at Glandford

Anyone who has tried to twitch Bee-eater knows its not an easy bird to catch up with, but today me and Monkey finally caught up with this exotically coloured cracker. After driving for 2.5 hrs we were looking at this stunner catching Bees from the wires in Glandford Norfolk which were over a small meadow. Its been a Superb week, the Melody midweek, Bonaparte's Gull yesterday, West Ham winning the play off final and now one of the birds I've always wanted to see in the UK and jamming in on the RB Fly aswell today. Just a shame my pictures are a bit distant. Am I worried? No! its a Bee-eater I would of still been happy to see one here in the UK and not get any photos of it.....
