This week I noticed the same roller on a tree in my garden . It had a mate, but if I tried to photograph them, they'd both fly off squawking loudly!
Lilac-breasted Roller in my garden
Today I managed to snap the pair as they sat on the same branch. It's only when I downloaded the photos, that I noticed the grasshopper in one of the birds' bills. It was going to feed young and their nest has to be in our garden!
One of the rollers landed on the branch with a grasshopper in its bill!
Rollers make nests in holes in trees but these two seem to be flying in under the cottage eaves. I've tried to see if there's an opening there, but not seen anything yet. Meanwhile, I don't want to disturb these two dedicated parents...

Here's wishing you all a wonderful weekend.
