More blizzards


Just 2 grebes in the harbour at Kamiiso today, this Slavonian and another Black Necked. 2 or 3 Scaup and a couple of Pochard were the only other birds present..................

Grebes still around..............



The grebes were still at Kamiiso this afternoon. The top one is a Slavonian Grebe and the bottom one a Black Necked Grebe.

Both the above shots are uncropped as are many below: they were pretty tame..............

Some more crappy photos of ducks


I had an hour in Omuma this afternoon trying to relocate the Ring Necked Duck. I had only taken crappy record shots last Monday and the sun was out so I had high hopes as we set off.............

Hakodate under the snow


With an unusually light workload I took a 90 minute or so walk around the neighbourhood this morning...............and the snow was pretty deep. I was hoping for some waxwings but the only birds around were a few Dusky Thrush and Hawfinch (above).................

Almost no snow until christmas and then lots after, winters are getting shorter.
