I finally captured two of Nick's Hobbys at Callum Brae together the other day, and believe at least one of them is a juvenile.  The one on the left has definite rufous feather margins while the right-hand bird's wing feathers are more like my guide's description of an adult.  Both are very brown rufous all over so a bit confusing.  Undertail looks like immature in both birds acc to Pizzey Knight. Any opinions?  Would this count as a successful breeding record given Nick's recent history of "birds around nest" 100m from from this photo?
