Hobby returns

Two days later than last year, but it looks like our breeding pair of Hobbies has returned. There I was, lounging entirely predictably in my garden chair, when the familiar shape drifted over the garden, followed swiftly by another. I had to squint a lot, and furrow my brow, before I allowed myself to shout "Hobby!" very loudly and jump up and run for my camera. The results are hardly worthwhile, but you get the picture...


  1. Oh I don't know, that's not a bad shot of a flyover bird.

  2. They came over our house this morning, and did some breeding in mid flight.
