Female smew cleans her feathers

This 20 June 2016 video shows a female smew cleaning her feathers.

Because of an injured wing, this duck was unable to fly with the others on spring migration to her northern or eastern European nesting ground. Now, she is staying this summer in Biesbosch national park in the Netherlands.
