Hobby, Red Kite & More Waders

Slightly late news but Wednesday 21st yielded Hobby, Red Kite (50th of the year for me although a small chance it was a lingering bird that I've seen before), 10 Redshank, 10 Black-tailed Godwit, 9 Curlew and also a Teal.

I took a few ropey pics of the Hobby and it looks VERY much like (one of) the bird(s) I saw just South of BHM on 6th June. Breeding locally perhaps? I used to see Hobby almost daily by the River Coly (Colyton) in summers pre 2010 but they've been a little less reliable in recent years. Hopefully there is a pair nearby!
