Totally unexpected garden tick!

Linda and I have lived in our bungalow on the Heath for nearly 20 years: we have a medium-sized garden with arable farmland on two sides. As a result, most of the birds on our garden list have been flyovers or farmland birds: imagine my surprise, then, when I looked from the office window to see a Moorhen swimming in our tiny pond!

He hung around for half an hour, alternating between eating worms on the lawn and swimming in the pond: a very pleasant surprise! While I was copying over the images from my SD card, a male Merlin flew across the garden - great to see, but frustrating because the card was not in the camera!
