The Smew is still around near the Gladwyn hide and showing well at times. Two male Bullfinches were in the woods by the towpath. Also present were numerous Redwings, Blackbirds tits and crests. Heard a few Siskin here as well.
Wandered down to the Hollycross feeders-the Marsh Tit was calling but did not show, but there were as usual hoards of Goldfinch and Chaffinch with a few Greenfinches thrown in. The Bramblings have been reported again but as usual failed to appear for me.
Back at the watchpoint things had not changed much. However a Water Rail appeared from time to time so I tried filming it with the RX 100 through the scope.
