Bob Ford's Video Blog
Tuesday October 1st 2013
Every autumn I look forward to seeing a hobby darting over the reed beds at Radipole.
Some years I see one, some years I don't.
Today there were four together!
Notice that this young bird missed a dragonfly right at the start of the video.
The next video feature a somewhat smarter bird, greyer with whiter cheeks. Probably an adult.
By now I had reached the North Hide and the hobbies were even closer.
Finally I filmed one actually eating a dragonfly!
