European Roller 3-7-12

With good friend Dave Hutton making his way to Barton for 8am Jacqui and myself made a early start getting everything ready for a great bird for Britain in E.Yorks.
After a quick coffee we made our way to Aldbrough and the Roller in really wet weather to say the least.
After a hour drive we arrived on site and soon onto the Roller sitting on the post in the ploughed field,but it always kept distant so only record shots could be obtained.
A dream bird for me always wondered since my early days of birding would I ever see a Roller in Britain.
With the weather being so wet we didn't hang around for to long and headed back home but still a good morning was had.
