Followers of the Pomeroy reserve blog will know how keen we are on spotting the various
birds that visit. We have in the past occasionally seen the European Roller but it’s been
super over the last couple of weeks to see several on the edge of the reserve. Finally it’s
been possible to get photographs of this beautiful bird. In flight the striking azure blue of
the underwing which contrasts with the blackish primaries catches the eye. It’s been a real
pleasure this year to be able to observe this bird regularly before it moves on again.
