Falco Subbuteo

Hobby - A elegant bird of prey and amazing to watch in flight. The aerobatics and speed is fast enough to intercept even Swallows and Swifts on the wing. It will take large insects, such as dragonflies, which are transferred from talons to beak and eaten in flight. These Hobby's were photographed flying high above Willington Nature Reserve in Derby England.
