Yea, I’m confused too. But just a little excited.
I went to Paxton Pits. The last time I went there, it was frozen solid, and I got some pictures of a fox on the frozen lake, which I posted. So, today; not frozen, and a lot of activity from the nesting Cormorants and Herons.
A Smew. I’d been missing these locally at the start of the year. Whenever one was reported at a lake, I’d turn up next day, and it would be gone. So frustrating, especially as I’d never seen one before. Well, today, the first bird I saw on the lake today was a Smew. Not one, but six! Three pairs.
