I have not written anything for the last month. I have been away in Nigeria and then a seemingly endless succession of very drear and rainy days have followed precluding getting out and seeing things. Even the gulls are starting to look a bit wet and miserable. All of them flying into Roome Bay this morning were dangling their legs below them, carrying great big clods of mud picked up from the fields they have been feeding in. As a small antidote to the current weather – November was officially one of the dullest months ever – I am posting a picture from my recent trip. A red-throated bee-eater. Very unlikely to ever make it onto the Crail list. A shame – but these are common where I stay in central Nigeria and brighten up every walk.

Red-throated bee-eater. Sadly not the latest addition to the Crail list.
