Hobby attack

Yesterday evening ( 8:30pm )I was treated to a fantastic spectacle of a Hobby hunting Starlings in front of the hide at Loxton marsh ( Ham Wall ). The flock must of consisted of at least 100 Birds but the Hobby was unsuccessful in it's quest.Proof I guess, of safety in numbers.Quite a sight to behold.

Re: Hobby attack

Saturday morning a Hobby flew in and took a dragonfly then zipped to within a few inches of the Tor hide at Ham Wall. A brilliant sight!

Also a close view of a Great White Egret and lots of other things!
