Well I've got to do something to make sure I leave the house, haven't I? I went down to Whitlingham again, to find the entire Little Broad frozen, and only three large gaps in the ice on the Great Broad. A long time spent scanning, no Smew. Watching from the bird screen in the conservation area I managed to pick up a Jack Snipe (1st one at Whitlingham), and a Little Grebe was on the river. Careful scrutiny of the old trees near the Little Broad gave me my first Treecreeper of the year, so not a complete loss.
