Was surprised by this visitor late this afternoon, whilst waiting for a female Great-Spotted Woodpecker to return. The garden was relatively full of Reed Buntings, Tits, House Sparrows and Chaffinches, having their pre-dusk feed, when this bird dropped out of a tree, flew under a bush and then zoomed up to perch on the edge of the shed. It stayed for a few seconds, before flying up into a nearby tree; about 30 seconds later it flashed through the garden again, as a Sparrow broke cover, and both disappeared into neighbouring gardens.
