Seeing more & more Hobby's recently, last one at Greenfield a week ago, yesterday's whilst setting up for foxing in Oswestry, anyone else seeing more of them?.

There`s always a couple of pair`s that nest local to me. Enjoyable to see then catching Dragon files and other larger insects in flight.

Often see a visiting pair over the Dorset heathland. Ideal terrain with plenty of damsel and dragonflys for them. Will soon be leaving us for warmer climes though now!

Was decoying last year on a large stubble field near 3 ponds and there was a pair flying around there all day. Great birds

I've been seeing hobby's pretty frequently the last couple of years in South Cambridgeshire. Also this year appears to be a good year for dragon flies too. Great little falcons to watch.

Beautiful to watch along the banks of the upper ouse not far from where i live (as are the kingfishers), but my favourites in flight has to be the Merlin skimming the heather or a peregrine in a flat out dive.

Good post. It definitely ain't all about the shooting.
