A new garden 'tick' !

At 8.00pm  this evening  I was relaxing after the heat of the day  in our  summer house when suddenly I became aware of a Pied Flycatcher in our one and only tree! Fortunately I was able to lay my hands on the camera but as the light was fading I had to push the ISO to 16,ooo! (never used it before) but managed a couple of record shots.

Not perfect I know, but there is no doubt about the identity of the bird.
Garden tick list now 110.

There have been 3 Wheatears in and around the garden today.
