Croston Finney/Moss

A quick visit after the early evening squall in the hope if waders on the Great Close floods.

7 Snipe seen and 1 Curlew heard distantly were the only waders.

3 mallard in growing flood in field nearest Great Hanging Bridge.

3 Meadow Pipit.

Highlight of the visit was from near the works depot where a Hobby showed well including a tussle with a Kestrel and eating presumably an insect on the wing. Headed off in the direction of Croston.
