Hobby saves the day... again!

We were back on the patch again this morning for a few hours birding, and Druridge Pools definitely felt quieter than our other visits recently. There were still some common wader species on the coal road pools, but other than a Garganey and 16 Black-tailed Godwits, there wasn't much going on.

Thankfully, just as we were leaving my dad spotted a Hobby flying very low and quickly over the entrance, and it looped around once before heading south.  

Moving on, Chevington and Cresswell were also quiet with a Greenshank flying over Chevington being the best we could manage.
