I live 8 miles from London Bridge.

And we had one of them turn up in my garden in March.

It scratched about in the dirt then perched on the fence for a few minutes before flying off.

Where the hell that came from we can't work out. :scratch:

Ive had a pair for the last 2 years trying to hatch a brood in my garden. Not very successfully I’m afraid...ground nesters in an environment full of predators.
