Smew: A nice little Christmas Eve treat!

Before the big day and the Christmas family trips and visits I decided to try and get some better images of a Smew after only getting very poor images from Cheshire's bird.

So I drove down to Hanley where there had been one knocking about for a few weeks, however the sun today was awful and the light on the pond was terrible.

So todays results were a little better than last week, but there is still a lot of room to improve.

By far my favourite sawbill, but I'm still chasing the snow white male!
