On 8 September 2002, a juvenile Hobby was apparently plucking a prey on a wooden bridge near its presumed natal site, a nest in an electricity tower in open farmland. Two Kestrels were also present. Shortly afterwards, a Kestrel was seen plucking a prey on the ground, being encircled on foot by the agitated, spread-tailed Hobby. After the Kestrel had taken off with the prey, the Hobby returned to its sitting post on the bridge. It is thought that the Kestrel had snatched the prey from the juvenile Hobby. Agonistic encounters between both species had already been recorded during the previous week.
