Have not got a clue what they are, but suspect they would be lifers for most people. Never seen them here before and they are quite noisy, so would have noticed them. Will stick a photo in tomorrow.

A flock of 15 or so have just been outside my front door after the moths around the street light. Amazing!! It has been dark for a couple of hours.

There are still a few bea eaters on the island. At the moment there is a pair that are on the land between the Geranimos Suites and the Shraton hotel.

There are bee eaters in Caleta. I was in a bar called the Pickled Palm in the newly named Fiesta Centre, which was the Montecastillo and I saw one fly by. There were about ten around as I walked down the hill. The red billed tropic bird is also around behing the San Jorge, on and off.
