Just making the most of these guys before they go .....

Two posts on the same day but I just can't resist it !

3rd October and there were two Hobby's today still on the reserve, from what I understand mid-October is the time of year by which most will have already migrated, it will be interesting to see when they are last observed this year.

I am absolutely hooked on these birds, such acceleration and manouvrability on the wing to catch their target prey.

I love all raptors, OK, Peregrines in a stoop are faster, Kestrels hover, Sparrowhawks use the element of surprise but these guys are peerless, they have got the lot !


  1. This is why I love them so much, I can't think of a photographer who after watching and trying to photograph them doesn't. I reckon they must feature in most's top ten birds.
