The Vestal

Another visit to Maxey, this time at lunchtime. The two juvenile Spotted Redshanks finally showed for me but other than a Dunlin and a Snipe that was it for the waders. A Hobby showed off catching insects, specialising in paired Common Darters. Insects were a bit more interesting with Red-veined Darters about and this moth, a migrant more commonly seen in the south and first for me in the UK.

Through the miracle of modern digiscoping you can now get a small blurred image of a Hobby in flight.
