Roller – 1994

Coracias garrulusRholyddVagrant

One Roller has been recorded, near Panteg from 5 to 8 August 1991 and possibly staying a few days longer (J.L. Nelmes et al.). It fitted well into the Pembrokeshire landscape, using overhead wires as perches from which it plunged to prey on a variety of invertebrates, lizards and, once, a young adder.
