Smew - what a bird !

Rother Valley Country Park 30/12/86 - this was a really special bird, a lifer and at the time just brilliant. It spent the whole winter on the nature reserve and was seen by hundreds of birders, it was joined by two females in the new year of 87. On the day it turned up I was having 5 teeth out at the dentist and all my mates saw it, but I had to wait for a day!
