Hi Callie
Just spotted your query about my bee-eater photo. I looked at the other photos I took of this same bird and I am almost certain that this is a juvenile Little Bee-eater, hence the lack of the black border below the throat. My bird book has an almost identical photo of the juvenile. It seems that the Swallow-tailed BE is more likely to be found in the dry western parts of the country according to my research.
Thanks for your interest and I have learned a bit more as a result.
