juvenile Roller terrible shots

 this juvenile Roller found a few days back was entertaining in the Lincolnshire fens at Timberland yesterday but always distant, flighty and in horrendous heat haze most oof the time

On October 3rd 1983 as County Recorder I received a phone call from a visitor to the county who reported finding a Roller near Woodall Spa while out on a family walk - he agreed to meet me there the following morning and show me where the bird had been and luckily it was still there on a clear fell and feeding well - it went on to stay for 17 days so this year's bird has a while to go to beat that record - amazingly though, the two sites are only 10kms apart, as the Roller flies quite a coincidence
