I've visited the Bee-eater colony found last year.  There are cca. 10 pairs there now, they are busy arond the wall. I made a few sketches:




























They are digging the holes, and saw them mating:

Thank you very much for your kind comments! The Bee-eaters are leaving now the area, but hopefully they will all return next May. I'll surely check the site, and devote some time for sketching them.

Love these sketches (and the others on your blog)! We saw bee eaters in Southern Spain earlier this year and I'm looking forward to doing some paintings of them.
