Broad-billed Roller

Eurystomus glaucurus

This brilliant, dark cinnamon and purple roller, with its bright yellow bill, is a real highlight of any trip to the northern reaches of the Kruger National Park, where it occurs as a summer migrant.

Imagine our suprize then when it rocked up at Emmarentia Dam in November 2014. What an amazing sighting and only 10 minutes from our home.
