The pair of Hobbies were seen again this evening, they were a little late due to the windy conditions 8.53-9.31pm continually hunting for Cockchafers over Fallowfields & the garden. They caught quite a few of the July bugs eating them in mid air as they grasped them in their talons, as they were feeding a big piece of the body fell to the ground. They flew very acrobatically often sweeping up to catch the Cockchafers. They only appeared once the July bugs started to fly over the trees. Again they would rapidly flap their wings and put a quick burst of flight on to rapidly go north over the garden and the house.
