Today I spent a few hours poking around Wraysbury pits and Staines Reservoir. My target bird was Smew; but alas, I didn't get any today. Its been about 15 years since last seeing this species, so I suppose I can wait a little longer..There were good numbers of ducks in both areas including Wigeon, Shoveler, Gadwall, Mallard, Tufted Duck and Goldeneye. I did get Goosander on the Wrasbury side as well as Kingfisher. As I was leaving Staines Reservoir I got 2 Fieldfare on the perimeter fence.
