Lilac breasted roller

Another shot from our recent weekend in The Cotswolds. We have been lucky enough to see these beautiful birds in their natural habitats. I believe they are called "rollers" because of the nature of their flight in their courtship ritual.
My all time favourite African bird, this is a lovely study.

@wendytel Wendy, it's Birdland in Bourton-on-the-Water. Worth the trip.
