Smew

Thanks to the Ingrebourne drums i found myself standing in a new pair of boots, now covered in mud, no coat and freezing along with that now the snow was rain so i was getting wet with it, looking through the Berwick fishery fencing at a drake Smew.


As birds go this has to be one of my favourites  i was lucky when i arrived as it was in the corner i was viewing from and slowly drifted towards the hut but also more to the middle.


I got to see most of its markings including the darker tail feathers. With more imagination than you can muster its in the picture below.


 So that's 99 for the Valley, what's going to be bird 100 - Goosander, Black Tailed Godwit or Bittern? I'd settle with a Siskin
