Hobby hunting lower tonight
With darker skies tonight and a work commitment yesterday night I was anxious to see if the Hobby/ies were still hunting over fallowfields. I was not to be disappointed as a Hobby started hunting over Fallowfields from 8.49pm onwards, this time hunting low just over the height of the trees and bushes as the cooler air were causing the insects to fly lower. On one occasion I saw the Hobby deftly catch a Cockchafer with one talon and promptly lean down to eat it! Around 2 Black- headed Gulls were also catching insects too.
