Thanks to Rod Key for the following:-
HOODED MERGANSER Still present this morning-23rd Feb-on the R.Trent at Newton Solney. Unfortunately the bird has great difficulty flying and is now classed as an escape and is wing clipped. The only other county record was of a pair on a small mill pond in Chinley in Jan 2009 which were also thought to be escapes. Still a nice bird to see but not tickable!!!!!
