Life On and Off an Acreage

In-sights into moving from an Acreage back to Town, plus a few things I find of interest.

Two things that horses are scared about:

1. Things that move
2. Things that don't move

I was looking across he pond at this Mallard hen today. I could not get closer so I went to maximum zoom with the following results. Not Good!

The camera is a Canon  Power Shot SX50 HS with 50X zoom plus 4X optical zoom. I was sitting and bracing the camera on both knees.

Focal length 215 mm ( 4995   35 mm equivalent)
F number 6.5
Iso 500
1/160 sec
Day was overcast

 As you can see, the image is not very good.
Any body have any ideas on how to sharpen this up? I.e get more detail?
