A snowy Friday


A crappy record shot of a Japanese Waxwing just outside town this afternoon................

Not much else around: the usual ducks (about 12 species), gulls (6 or 7 species), Hawfinch and Great Egret etc. Nearer my flat this week there was a late Red-flanked Bluetail and a Brown Dipper but not much else............

November 3rd 2013.

A drake American Wigeon near Hakodate 4 years ago today. Only the second time I'd ever seen this species (and I haven't seen one since) and my first outing with my new 7D Mark 2.

I check the wigeon flocks every year in the hope another one turns up. Maybe 2017 will see one appear locally again.............

A young Red-legged Kittiwake 4 years ago today at Yakumo.

A heavy crop and not a great photo but this is a rare bird in Japan and I was very happy to find one. It was with a large flock of Black-legged Kittiwakes and to be honest I wouldn't have noticed it if it hadn't been flying around on its own and fairly close for a bit.............it was obviously different from the others.
