Smews - Taw Estuary

Arrived at Barnstaple Taw Bridge exactly at the same time as George Mudford but the 2 male Smew had been spooked just before we arrived.

I searched for the birds on my bicycle & found them approx 1

mile away downstream. Cycled back to tell George, then Maurice George & myself obtained good distant views of both birds. George is staying on hoping the birds will get closer.
