Little Bee-eater

01st October 2012
Out in the park yesterday, I saw a pair of Little Bee-eaters sitting on a low bush. They didn't move away initially which made me think that they might be nesting nearby. One of the pair flew off as we got closer, but sure enough, it dropped down to a little hole right next to the road that I had never noticed before. It wasn't carrying anything, but the presence of an egg-shell outside the nest-hole made me think that the pair were rearing a chick inside.

The other adult sat obligingly on the twig to allow us to take photos.
