Lee Mount

Hobby tonight 8.45 pm over Lee Mount had 2 passes at c40 Swifts feeding over trees at back of Shroggs Park. I had been out for nearly an hour watching the Swifts overhead and thinking, not long now and they will be on their way till next summer - such amazing birds, when the Hobby shot over scattering the Swifts in all directions. They came back together before scattering again on the second pass!
First ever Hobby over the house since 1974!!
