Finishing work at the very reasonable hour of 3.30pm in late January, as the afternoons are perceptibly becoming a little longer, offers the prospect of one hour of light with which to play.
A brief visit to nearby Linton Pond then, added Common Shelduck to this year's list and some better views with the scope of the 1st-winter/female Smew which despite fewer wildfowl generally tonight is still around albeit a little elusive at times. Many birds are yet to return after the hard weather with a complete absence of Moorhen noticeable and only a handful of Coot.
A single dapper drake Shoveler deserved some company.
