SMEW !!!

A cold miserable start to the day was suddenly transformed by the surprise appearance of 4 Smew! One superb drake accompanied by 3 females. A quick return to the bungalow for the camera and a few record shots. I've seen females on the Lagoon before but can't recall a drake. Wow....nice bird!
Red Breasted Mergansers, Goldeneye and the long stay Scaup all still present.
