Polemere - Hobby paddling!

One of those 'did that just happen' moments happened today! I was passing Polemere and thought it was worth a quick look with a Garganey in mind? Not a chance, but plenty of swallows and after 5 mins or so, the alarm went up, even the Geese got alarmed! And then the reason became obvious on the far bank! A Hobby...


After flying towards the near bank it was partly hidden behind the hedge. But then it simply strode into view...




Marching down to the waters edge!


Well, it was rather hot...


An proceeded to cool down its feet in the water!!


But not for long, just look at those flies scatter...


Another one for the 'Great Hobby' moments album and I've been lucky enough to have a few :-)
