Brief visit to Brandon Marsh this afternoon produced the female Smew though she was elusive at times, also seen were 25 Siskin, Lesser Redpoll, Kingfisher, 2 male Goldeneye, Snipe and 2 Great-spotted Woodpecker. Did not have time to do Lawford Heath justice but the maise harvest has been completed and some areas looked quite birdy.


  1. The Smew appeared at the side of the Baldwin hide yesterday afternoon whilst I was there. Having been in the company of Mallards when a Coot took too starting a fight, she flew in. Photos on my web site if you'd like a look :)
