31st August Hobby
After the Friday Asda shop I did my usual walk over Roils Head, 6 Willow Warblers were in the tit flock but not much else happening so moved on to Tower Hill at Norton Tower where I found a Wheatear sat on a wall. Got the camera out and started to take a few shots but it began to rain so put the camera away and moved on. I had only gone a few yards when a bird came flying towards me, bins up to reveal a superb juvenile Hobby it flew amost directly over me then stooped at high speed into Luddenden Valley where it had a couple of goes at Swallows before moving on at speed towards Warley Village (camera in bag so sadly no photos).
