A distant Smew

My highlight of the morning on the pond today was a rather distant viewing of a female Smew(not seen one on Holywell for some time),the mandarin was still present hauling out on the island occasionally, to complete the trio was a nice pair Goldeneye.

                                                  getting ready for take off

Nice to get out and get some fresh air throu the lungs again after the usual winter cold.

ps Many thanks to the gentleman who called at my door to tell me of the Smew on the pond just as I was putting it up on the blog (a very kind deed)

                                                             thanks for looking
