Dashing new garden tick!

As I drove back from my visit to North Norfolk, I drew into the road where we live at precisely 7.53pm this evening and I immediately saw the dark lithe dashing shape of a Hobby fly west over the garden across the road then over the car and west towards Blundeston.
I always like seeing Hobbies, these athletic Falcons are summer visitors and prey on flying insects such as Dragonflies and Cockchafers.
This was a brand new record of this species, at this particular location. Funnily enough when I first moved into my previous residence in Oulton Broad one had flown up the road there also. 
Also seen in the garden this morning were several Peacock butterflies, Large Whites and singles of Small White, Painted Lady & Gatekeeper.
