Lone Waxwing and 2 Smew

At 09:30 this morning I was driving along Baldwins Lane towards Croxley Green when I noticed a single Waxwing perched on the telephone wires directly above the road. I had a quick look 45 minutes later but it was not to be seen.

At about 14:30 I visited Bury Lake and then Scotsbridge Mill with Paul F. At Bury lake we noted the following; Wigeon, Pochard, Gadwall, Shoveler, Goldeneye, 6 Red Crested Pochard, Ring Necked Parakeet and best of all 2 Smew both showing well close in. At Stockers Farm a lone Lapwing patrolled the "flooded field."
At Scotsbridge Mill we noted the following; c20 Teal, 3 Little Egret, c5 Water Rail, 8+ Snipe.
