Hobby at last

I stopped off at  Linford late tonight as it was raining and I thought something might drop in.
As I drove up the drive a Cuckoo flew over.
I met Rob and Lucy on the track and while chatting to them the male Barn Owl flew over us.
On to the near hide where there didn't seem to be much on show other than a pair of Wigeon and an Oystercatcher.
It was then that I noticed a Hobby flying across the lake at great speed. As it reached the bund it stooped  and just missed a small wader that had been sat there that I had been totally unaware of. I believe it was a Little Ringed Plover but can't be sure as it flew off very rapidly, not to return.
Quite a spectacle and my first Hobby of the year.
