GLE Hobby

A pity to have missed the GLE Whimbrels this morning, as I could watch these birds all day but I decided to plonk myself down for a bit in the blistering heat of the late morning and early afternoon to see if anything else would turn up. After a while something swooping about at the south end of GLE caught my eye and of course typically I was up the "top end" watching a male Wheatear.

Anyway, given the size, speed and acrobatics of this bird I immediately thought of a Hobby - but a bit early. I fired off a few long distance shots and thankfully managed to get something to confirm the ID.
