No snow overnight as forecast and temperatures reaching the dizzy heights of one degree provided a miserable looking day. The few flurries of snow that did fall this morning were greeted with whoops of delight from Tom shouting "no school tomorrow!" - so I went out. To Saddlebow, King's Lynn, where there had been reports of a couple of Smew. Side roads still slippery and it certainly felt colder than a single degree.
Scoping the river from the bridge I saw three Redheads (first winter or adult female Smew) in the distance. Clearly seen here in the middle.
and here a good size comparison with accompanying Mallards, Black-headed Gulls and two Goldeneyes
On into the village and at last some Fieldfares on the ground.
not a snowball's chance in.............
