Bee eaters in Brampton....

Amazingly 2 pairs of bee eaters who normally breed in warmer climes than here have been discovered nesting in a quarry near Brampton. The bright and beautiful birds normally nest in Southern Europe but have built their nest in Low Gelt Quarry near Brampton. They were discovered by workmen there in June and have been watched and protected by the RSPB since then but now the word is out and we can go and visit and view them from a hide set up specially.
