Smew at Roadford

Went to the hide at the viaduct end of Roadford today at 3pm and was surprised to spot an adult male smew as we had been told that it had not been seen for several days. It was with tufted duck left of the hide. Also beyond the viaduct past the farm in a weedy field left of the road a large flock of finches amongst which were at least 6 + Brambling.
