Smew New?

Another couple of days, another couple of ticks.....this cold weather certainly is doing the business. First up a classy redhead Smew on the Roding (a small stream in these parts), patch-tick goodness, and the one I've been wanting. Another one I've been wanting, I should say. Then this morning I checked the Basin early doors and what should be swimming around between the usuals but FIVE Goosanders. I've seen just one before now, about three years ago. I may give up broadcasting and take up patch-list challenging full-time.
