Identify this plant.

Can anyone identify this plant, which has suddenly appeared in my garden this summer?

    They do pop up everywhere, I haven’t seen the seed in the bird food, but it could have, or a present from a bird from eating it off the plant.
    I've put some seeds on the  Seed Swap thread.
