'Exotic' bee-eaters spotted at Nottinghamshire sand quarry

Seven "exotic" bee-eaters have been seen mating at a quarry in Nottinghamshire.

Birdwatchers have rushed to the site in East Leake to catch a glimpse of the birds that are usually seen in southern Europe.

The RSPB believe the species have been heading northwards due to climate change.
