Bird Watching (UK) - - Your Birding Month -

Many of our ducks are lovely, but few can com­pete with the male Smew for beauty. They are small, shy ducks, vis­it­ing south­ern and eastern Eng­land in times of chill on the con­ti­nent in small num­bers (usu­ally fewer than 200 birds). Only adult males are white with fine black lines; fe­males and young­sters (called ‘red­heads’) are grey with red-brown heads and white cheeks and throats.
