An unusual addition to the garden life list!

Today, we added Moorhen to the garden life list! Just before leaving for work this morning I noticed an unusual shape in the tree and it was being hassled by a Jay. I was amazed when I realised it was a Moorhen. I have always thought it was possible that a Mallard may drop in on the stream that runs down the rear of the garden, as they pass over frequently, but never expected a Moorhen to add to the list!
