Increasingly cold weather produces SMEW

There is a red-head SMEW at Broom GP, on Gypsy Lane West pit this lunchtime. It was a bit skittish and flew as soon as it saw me on the east bank, but quickly came down again and was last seen sitting preening on the north bank of the pit at 12:45 (Steve Blain)
