Patch perks up a bit

Nothing new or rare but I had a pleasant surprise this evening when I got unusually good views of a Hobby in Banstead Woods, a species that I haven't seen there at all in the last couple of months. A brief Lesser Spotted Woodpecker and a pair of Bullfinches also made the evening worthwhile. Still waiting for a migrant (not even a single Willow Warbler in sight!).
