Afternoon Delight

Dark Green Fritillary and Sedge Warbler (unusual colouring from shade of Umbellifera)

An afternoon call from BD alerted me to Hobby seen at E Chev. I headed to the Druridge end of my patch normally good for Hobby. After an hour or so the Starlings rose from the field in a close knit ball but no raptor to be seen. A call to IR about Greenshank and Wood Sand was quickly followed by another to announce the Hobby. The Starlings rose in the same way and just to the side a beautiful Hobby flew straight towards the Budge Screen. It was gone in under a second but will no doubt be recorded in the area again.
