Regular visitors will have noticed a decrease in posts to the HEMEL NATURE
blog - this is because I have been living & working out of the area, & due to the job my time out
& about with nature in Hemel is limited. I am working on a new blog to come soon & hope that the work that has gone into HEMEL NATURE will prove useful & interesting to those still visiting it.

HOBBY, RED KITE, BUZZARD & SPARROWHAWK at Piccotts End (Hobby heading towards Gadebridge)

Record shot of Hobby at Piccotts End.
HOBBY hunting low out of sight along the river at Piccotts End village then crossed then came over the hedge, crossing Leighton Buzzard Road, & continuing across the fields towards Gadebridge main. I was alerted to its presence a while before I could see it by the alarm calls of the SWALLOWS in the area.

Record shot of Hobby at Piccotts End.

The Hobby was 1 of 5 Raptor Species seen around the area over an hour or so.
