  Rainbow Bee-eater
Merops ornatus
  Black Kite
Milvus migrans
 
 
During summer these tunnel into the dune to build their nest, in our cooler months they migrate north where their favourite food, bees, are more active.
 
These regularly patrol the skies over the Lammermoor Native Gardens looking for prey, their twisting forked tail is a distinguishing feature.
 
     
     
  Peaceful Dove
Geopelia placida
  Double-barred Finch
Taeniopygia bichenovii
 
 
Peaceful Doves are very common here and you see them in pairs or small flocks throughout the gardens, their call is a musical 'doodle-doo'.
 
You may come across a small flock of these foraging among the grass and small shrubs, they are also found in the car park area and woodland.
