Merops apiaster

No: Bieter, Eng: Bee-eater, It: Gruccione

Dear All,
For July, I have selected this very colourful bird. It is occasionally seen in Norway, e.g. in June a group of 10 visited Hordaland. But these photos are from Extremadura, Spain,
where Harald T. and myself saw them on May 31. They do also eat flies (last photo).

I wish you all a nice summer.
