A Twitchable Hobby

Many thanks to Stephen Foster for confirming the identification of a Hobby at Montiaghs Moss, near Aghagallon. Originally found by Kieran Breen, the Hobby seems to be a second calendar year bird.
Montiaghs Moss is near Aghagallon. To locate the site, go to the Featherbed Road which runs north from the Derryhirk Inn.  At the junction of Featherbed Road and Moytown Road is a wooden gate. A rank field there has a few sheep and along the back of this grazing paddock is a fence. The Hobby seems to like the big corner post as it can lie flat on its belly and rest as it seemingly has a sore leg.
