Today's prize goes to the 20+ Swallows which I enjoyed photographing and watching for at least an hour!
A single House Martin and half a dozen Swifts also moved through when suddenly a big racket escalated as the Swallows rose upwards and sure enough a Hobby shot into the camera viewfinder! This was a rather pleasing sight as this represents my first returning bird of the year for the KL patch!

To boost the day a little more, I also located a singing Lesser Whitethroat rattling away in the hedge near Langley Lodge, 1+ Red Kite was also in the area and 3 Buzzards. Good/Bad news was my first record of a calling Ring-necked Parakeet north of Berrybushes Wood. Who knows, they may well become a regular feature on patch in the years to come. Inverts of note included a Small White and a Silver-ground Carpet.
