G'day all,

I have been camping and fishing at Lake Eucumbene but watching out for the birds as well.
This morning 3 Gang Gangs began to fly from my side of the lake to the other when one of the resident Hobby's flew at them. 2 flew back but the third appeared to be herded by the Hobby to the other side. While the Hobby came very close to the Gang Gang i never saw it strike. 

The Gang Gang was calling the whole time but when they got to the other side (and out of my sight) there was silence, i assume the Hobby got his breakfast. I would have thought that a Gang Gang would be too large for him to take on?
