I spent a few hours at JPR and SAANR this morning. Weather was perfect for us, but not for migrants as there was literally no wind at all, so it was a little of a bird'less day.
A small flock of Blue-cheeked Bee-eaters had roosted overnight on the trees inside the entrance of JPR. Here is one being true to it's name - having caught a bee in flight!
