Hobby – 1994

Falco subbuteo – HEBOG YR EHEDYDD – Passage migrant

Single Hobbies have been recorded about 40 times in only eleven years between 1871 and 1969, but since then up to ten have been seen annually. Records refer to the periods 21 April to 23 June (with a very early migrant being seen at Castell Henllys on 24 March 1989) and 8 August to 3 November. A pair summered in 1989, and attempted breeding is possible, for this falcon has been extending its range in recent years and now nests in south-east Wales.
