Reared hobby chick heads south

On the 7th October, this rare bird of prey had its freedom, and headed south for Africa. ┬áThis hobby chick was found nearly 2 months ago on a street in Conventry and passers by took it back to a near by wildlife sanctuary and nursed it back to health. It was thought to be a kestrel first because it had so few feathers, but after fattening up they realised that it was a hobby. ┬áNuneaton and Warwickshire Wildlife sanctuary’s Geoff Grewcock saw it take of.
