Hobby - over Carew mountain

Hi, a Hobby circled over my garden (near Cresselly) this afternoon at 4.30 .It caused consternation among the local Swallows who mobbed it from a safe distance, making chattering calls rather than the usual alarm calls for Sparrowhawk . The Hobby was low enough to clearly see its face mask and red thighs , but appeared not to be in hunting mode and soon moved off to the north.
