Cold Edge

This afternoon the highlight was a Hobby over at 15:55 heading towards the Withens then it drifted off high>W. We first saw it right overhead with a Kestrel but the bold streaking on the underside gave it away then we had better views as it showed the white face markings and black moustacial markings as it drifted away from the Kestrel.
Not a lot else about other than
3 Tufted Duck
c50 Canada Geese
Just a few Meadow Pipits and a mixed flock of c40 Linnets and Goldfinch on the bankings of the upper dam.
A lovely afternoon once the threat if rain moved away.
