The long-staying European Roller in East Yorkshire got the better of me today and with more rain forecast, I grasped the moment and managed to connect with my first seen in the UK. The bird seemed to glow like a jewel in the sunshine and like all other European Rollers I've seen elsewhere, failed to come as close as I would have liked.
The lower bird was digiscoped in grey, overcast light in Hungary last month where a beam of sunshine would have been very welcome. European Rollers aren't common-place wherever I go but Hungary seems as good a place as anywhere I've visited.
