“I am delightfully addicted to some birds and can continue to watch even after having seen them thousands of times.
“The Bay-Headed/Chestnut-headed Bee-eaters (Merops leschenaulti leschenaulti) visit our home twice a day as we on their ‘daily feeding flight-way’, so we meet many times.
“Met a very friendly pair, when I was out today. They were feeding low on the ground, and allowed a close approach.
“The experience spoke all about why I am into bird watching.”
