Hobby - Jumble Hole

I was lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time this morning when a flock of noisy swallows alerted me to a raptor. They were in hot pursuit, and directed it right towards me. I quickly saw it was an adult hobby, and it passed right over me at roof top height, then away north over towards Blackshaw. 2 kestrels and 2 sparrowhawks have also been trying their chances with the swallow flock too. A chiffchaff has been calling all day, and a blackcap has been 'chacking' for the last few days.
