A visit to Netherfield to see if the Pintail were still there. They weren't but 2 Goldeneye gave distant views. I settled for the large Gull flock on the slurry lagoon, which contained many Black-headed Gulls, some Common Gulls and a few pairs of Herring, Lesser and Great Black-backed Gulls.
Lesser Black backed Gull sketched from the kitchen window. It was tinged salmon pink by the setting sun.
Smew on the Main pond, Attenborough. While I watched it kept to the edge of the water diving near a patch of flattened and decaying rushes then concealing itself under overhanging shrubs. As I moved closer it swam off and was noticeably smaller than the local Mallards.
