Hobby, possible the same 1st summer bird that’s been about or a moulting adult

I did manage to find Willow Emerald at the pond this morning, in between doing a couple of preparatory tasks ahead of the pond work-party in ten days time. I saw two or three individuals and a pair ovipositing. Also around the pond several Common Darter and a Southern Hawker.

This afternoon I managed a slow walk around the park, in pretty hot and humid conditions. Little and Tawny Owl were both calling from various locations, the Kingfisher was busy flying around the lake, a female Mandarin was close to the viewing screen and a Hobby drifted north over the sheep pasture in front of the hall. On the way to the lake I stopped off at the Ice Pond and found more Willow Emerald, Southern Hawker and Common & Ruddy Darter. A Chiffchaff was calling in the village on my way back home.
