It's surprising how many birds hover, we all know about Kestrels and skylarks, and we saw many buzzard hovering looking for prey over in France( not seen many here ). On our last trip to Shetland last year I noticed a Wheater hovering catching insects up at Sumburgh head but also singing in mid air, could this be due to a limited number of song posts so it has adapted to displaying like a skylark.

Has anyone seen this elsewhere with this species. I did also notice  that a Whitethroat was singing while hovering in France.
