Hobby and white Buzzards ~ Dartmoor

Following early morning phone calls from members of the DBWPS today started with a trip out to Dartmoor to pick up an injured adult Hobby that had been recovered by a farmer on his farm above Widdicombe, the bird has a badly injured left wing and is in very poor condition.

On the track down to the farm two recently fledged almost pure white Buzzards sitting on a field wall and a male Redstart, lots of Swallows and a couple of Pied wagtails.
