Finally a quality species that I have managed to catch up with!
3 redhead smew turned up on the grazing marsh pool yesterday and have been commuting between there and the fresh marsh. A quick dash down the path provided me with my 249th Titchwell tick after the dodgy June male of 2005!
The weather the last couple of days has been terrible and the best place to be has been in the office. Persistent light rain, near darkness and fog have not made looking for birds an inviting thought. Saying that, I have managed to add beardie and great spot taking the total to 102. 2 bitterns kicking around at the moment but only managed to get brief views so far - apparently there were 5 roosting at Holme before the cold snap.
