Somerset Birding

A trip up to Chew Valley Lake in Somerset this morning got me the following birds .                                                                                                                                                                                                        With numerous Tufted Duck and Common Pochard , a few Gadwall , around a dozen Common Goldeneye , a 1st winter male Greater Scaup , a very nice female Smew ( the bird that I had come for ) & 4 Goosander . 3 different Grebes were seen with Great Crested Grebe , Black-Necked Grebe and Little Grebe also seen were 10 Great White Egret and 2 Western Marsh Harrier .

On the way home we stopped of at the village of Stathe where we saw 36 Cattle Egret and a single Common Crane .
