A Bee-eater over the North end of the island at quarter past eight this morning brightened up a rather dull morning enormously. The bird was seen flying south along the mountain, and then reappeared at Nant moments later. It was then seen being attacked by a Peregrine over the North end maritime heath, and soon after the Peregrine was seen flying east carrying a bird. The actual kill was not witnessed, and so the fate of this poor continental migrant is still unsure. The only previous record on the island was of one in July 1984.
