I kept the shutter moving but not the list with a drive over to Westport lake this morning! At least I could say images of Redhead Smew were well and truly on the cards - as opposed to the very distant Redhead at Aqualate earlier in the year!
The only downside was the dull cloudy conditions! And the Smew was initially out in the middle but eventually flew to the south west corner....
Close encounter indeed! just 15m off the bank!
And the darker water helping somewhat?
The post dive moment.
Maybe the best (brief) moment of 'light'!
I've got a couple of days planned in Norfolk at the end of the week with Ian Grant. Let's see what happens then?
