More Hobbies! This juvenile Hobby feeding on a dragonfly was taken today, Sep 9th, in Falsterbo, Sweden. Last weekend I attended the 4th Falsterbo Bird Show and decided to stay for a few more days hoping for some raptor migration. Falsterbo is one of Europe's premier raptor migration watching sites, at least if you look at the statistics. However, I have come here on and off since the late 1970's (not that many times, really), but I have never yet had a "big day" here. Also this time the weather has been against me, first with beautiful sunny days but wind from the wrong direction, now with strong westerlies. One more day to go, but I doubt anything much will change. Still, I have had excellent encounters with raptors, like this juvenile Hobby, which was hunting insects around the watch site for most of the day.
