Thanks WTM and JVR! :thumbs_up:

Awesome to get a lifer in your own backyard! :dance: :dance: Our resident pair of Hadeda's gave it's presence away. I am sure it was around again yesterday afternoon for they were once more totally hysterical but I could not find it again. :D

I have Eurasian Hobby nearby (not yet) and like Johan van Resenburg already said is certainly not an Eurasian Hobby ... as per these I observe here (European's spring/summer)
