Arrival times

Love these colourful birds

Natural Newstead

I’ve been checking my records regarding arrival dates for Rainbow Bee-eaters.

  • 2010 – 27th October
  • 2011 – 22nd October
  • 2012 – 19th October
  • 2013 – 13th October
  • 2014 – 21st October
  • 2015 – 5th October
  • 2016 – 16th October
  • 2017 – 29th October

This year, 2018, my first sighting was on the weekend just gone … on the 27th October. I was surprised by these records, thinking that they generally arrived in early October. 2015 is the outlier it seems. I thought I made have heard some passing bee-eaters last weekend at the Rise and Shine but can’t be certain. Gee, it’s great to have them back!

Rainbow Bee-eaters, Loddon River @ Newstead … my first view this season, 27th October 2018
