Photos taken by Mr Johan Kriel& Ms Lee Burman on Sunday 30 December
Mr Johan Kriel reports:
On Christmas day I saw a Lilac-breasted Roller in Fisherhaven sitting on a telephone wire. I am very surprised. Did any of your members noticed this bird before.
I asked if there was any chance that it could have been a European Roller and Mr Kriel responded:
I visited Botswana on a regular basis and is 100% sure. The light purple /lilac breast as well as the prominent longer tail-feathers made it easy to identify. It was spotted at the turn-off into Fisherhaven in China Marais street.
Please let us know if you see the Roller? Pity for those doing the 2014 Challenge that it’s not 1st January yet!
