Merlin sighting

The other evening as I was driving from the farm to Preston on Wye I followed a Merlin down the road. They are the UK's smallest bird of prey and we did see one on the farm last year. They can fly at amazing speed and hover and hang in the breeze as it pursues it's prey. Then on Friday Richard was pretty sure it was in the Wiggly Garden hovering around the ivy near the bird table.....as long as it doesn't wipe out too many small birds.....(it is on the Amber list itself).
