Bee-eater

 This afternoon Bee-eater called twice high over Grove Hill/Underdown Bottom on the southern edge of Pembroke. (1620 hrs) Unfortunately, from the garden, my view of the sky was obfuscated by huge trees. But, as the “proot” calls were quite high up I may not have seen the bird(s) anyway. Figured from the position and slight delay between the two calls that the direction of travel was south east to north west. (Or it was a call and response 2 bird theory!) Heard nothing further after that, so presumably it/they was/were heading away.  After consuming Darryl’s Golden Oriole yesterday, this was a nice dessert.
