The foreshore dunes in Peregian Beach are an integral part of the Noosa National Park network.
They provide a nature corridor for our native flora & fauna and give the place it's unique character.
Can anyone identify this little bird?

Yes, a rainbow bee eater. They come to the oval every year for spring/summer and nest in holes in the banks of the oval.

Just added another photo of the beautiful little bird who hoovers like a hummingbird on the FB page. Just click on the blue writing in the right column on this page to see.
Speaking of Bee's.
Veggie Village is having a workshop all about Native Bees next Sunday the 7th Oct at the Community Gardens in Peregian.

The little bird is a rainbow bee eater; it tunnells into the dunes for it's nest. Is not here all year

I took a picture of a rainbow bee eater on the dunes last year.
I live at Peregian Beach.
