Soon after, we were blessed with brilliant and close views of the Roller, whereby it was favouring a nearby post. It seemed to be feeding up well on invertibrates and spent quite a bit of time on the ground. Rollers are day migrants which was why we wanted to make the journey so early, but we needn't have worried as the bird was present for the whole day. We also were given great views of Barn Owl as it gracefully flew past and over the Roller.

On the whole, an enjoyable day with two super birds! Thanks to Phil, for the great company and here's to more sucessful twitches!
