Hobby (Falco Subbuteo)





We have just returned from Norfolk which included a visit to RSPB Strumpshaw for only our second time.

No Swallow Tails this time although a few are about the reserve but we had a good day and saw our first Cuckoo of the year having previously heard three elsewhere in the country.

In the afternoon we sat in Fen Hide for a while (it did rain briefly, hence the dark shots) but having watched a a pair of Marsh Harriers flying over the reed bed we then had a Sparrowhawk sat in the dead tree in front of the hide.

Pat then spotted another raptor in a tree to the edge of the reed bed which we identified as a Hobby.

Having flown off it then flew in five minutes later fast and low over the pool in front of the hide, a couple of circuits and it flew straight at the hide with a dragonfly in its claws, I only managed a couple of shots, my first of this bird but a great treat to watch its aerial acrobatics.

A lot of people have never had an opportunity to attend a regular college or university however seek the raised earning possibilities and career advancement

Thanks for your posting. I also feel that laptop computers have become more and more popular
these days, and now are sometimes the only kind of computer found in
a household. Simply because at the same time they are
becoming more and more cost-effective, their working power is growing to the point where they're as effective as desktop computers from just a few years ago.
