When we were in Trinidad I received a kind text from Andrew C about a Smew at Gimingham. Much to my surprise it seems it was still there as an update message came through on 18th. I managed to miss it that night but found it the next day along with a splendid drake Goosander, the first I'd seen on the deck locally. Smew was a great claw back though, particularly as I thought my best chance was one flying past at sea, difficult to connect with.
The 20th saw us chasing a pigeon in Oxfordshire but the following day I connected with the 3 Whooper Swans between Roughton and Hanworth, well outside my usual birding area but inside the 10K square by quite a margin. Desperate stuff but I haven't yet been able to catch up with either wild swan species flying through - memo to self: get out more! And take a camera - you've got enough of them!!
