'Bee-eater

The bright colours of the European Bee-eater are shown here. This very scarce visitor nested as a colony in Britain in 1955 in Sussex, but a single pair  bred in county Durham in 2002 and seemingly with some success, which wasn't the case of another pair that nested in Herefordshire in 2005 that fell victim to foxes. Finally a pair nested in Dorset but nothing came of it. In 2014 and again in 2015 they have nested in Britain. But is changing weather making these visits more a progression than incidents of bird vagrancy?
