Taken from Avalon hide this afternoon Sat 7th Oct. Catching dinner
'Hard' = 'head' - I hate spelling auto correct
Definitely a kestrel. Disappointing that staff (volunteers or paid) couldn't correctly i.d. it. Several reasons why it is a kestrel and isn't a hobby. Most obvious ones are 1) Tail. Show me a hobby with that slab of black. 2) Wing markings. Nowhere near enough barring. 3) Hard marking nowhere near dark enough.
Wasn't sure was going on RSPB people there and behaviour catching dragonfly in air.
