Apart from when a Hobby has just left a tree I have never managed to catch it mid flight. If you think terns are difficult with their looping flight pattern or oyster catchers seem a bit quick, they have nothing on a hobby’s turn of speed.

I was minding my own business when a hobby decided to do a spot of fly catching and after watching him for a second I realised he might, just might, come out at a certain angle of a pool and sure enough he did. Almost crashing into the reeds he turned, regained controlled and was off, all in a split second.
