Dotterel & Hobby 8th July 2010

Crimdon & Castle Lake
managed to see both out targets :- Dotterel & Hobby
Good to bump into plenty folk & catch up

Looked odd seeing her right on the edge of the coast

After feeding busily, it went was disturbed by a walker & settled amongst an area of larger pebbles

tucked in like this it was tricky to locate

Only just visible

young Swallows waited on the wall to be fed

Moved onto Castle Lake, where the sub ad Hobby gave a superb performance to those in the busy hide.
Taking plenty of airborne items & watched side by side with a male Kestrel.

Hobby ! - iPhone strikes again !!  ;-)

Mr Jammy Forrest was in the hide when the bird came down to the same post as yesterday, so we'll hopefully see what he comes up with on the big BirdForum

good brood of 10 Gadwall ducklings
