Re: European Rollers

yusuf rescued a young tumbler that he saw in the town centre in the middle of the road.he stopped the traffic picked it up and brought it home. he used to put feed in his mouth and also water and he fed it that way as it was too young to feed itself

he kept it til it was big enough to look after itself..and at the time we had a restaurant in the beginning when it first started to fly whenever he sat at the table outside the bird would come down and stick its head in his mouth..i wish i'd taken pics at the time but we never thought of it...although loads of our customers did.

Re: European Rollers

They are distributed over the whole of Turkey during the breeding season they arrived here in Dalyan a couple of weeks ago, they tend to nest in small crevasses in cliffs so if you have any of that terrain near you then you may be lucky.

Re: European Rollers

Lovely Pic's. I am trying to find a pocket book size of flora and fauna in the Agean region. Can buy very large coffee table size but not a handy one to carry around.
