I went to Broom today, in the interest of finding possible scarce wildfowl species. It was a 'safe' time to go as Broom regulars, Martin and Steve were at work........so a text arrives whilst perusing the usual stuff on Peacock's and before I'd read who the text was from it was too late. 3 redhead Smew on Gypsy Lane West! The unthinkable had happened; Martin was off work on a Monday and ruined my chance of a guaranteed SFYT. If I'd been 5 minutes earlier they were mine...ALL MINE (horror film type laugh).
So a bit disappointed really- still, cracking birds and a site record count!
