Aerial Predator

At 11.42am whilst hanging out washing to dry on the garden washing line, I heard a "whoosh" directly over my head probably just a foot above me, spinning around instantly expecting to see a Sparrowhawk, I was very pleasantly surprised to see an excellent Hobby wheeling round and north over next door's garden, a typically dark- backed, scyth- winged Falcon. 
Also a Gatekeeper butterfly seen on the lawn and the conservatory window ledge plus a Peacock butterfly on the west- fence positioned Buddhlea this morning.
A Large White butterfly also in the garden this afternoon, plus a small Frog hopping around the dry brown leaves in the "Snowdrop patch".
180 Starling seen flying to roost at 7.20pm this evening over Hamilton Dock.
