I’ve never failed to see Bee-eater on any of my “in season” trips to
however the number and spread in Donana on this visit was exceptional. Spain
As well as views along tree lanes or electricity lines, we saw them in towns and around our hotel, skimming small lagoons and all over the open marsh land. Their high number gave a lot more photographic opportunities at the right points of view on lower fences rather than the higher telegraph wires.
Life bird count: 403. Year bird count: 203. Month bird count: 153 (April)
