Man about town
The Kingfisher returned today, here's a pic of it staring back at me. No car for a while so I've been beating the streets of Hakodate with the smaller 70-300 lens. The river is partially frozen and the Kingfisher appears to have relocated downstream close to another bird from early winter that I hadn't seen for a while.
The adult Thayers Gull, still present and still being bullied by the larger Slaty Backed and Herring (Vega) Gulls. It looked better against a blue sky. Today's weather was almost springlike (but still freezing) and the Spot Billed Ducks were displaying on the river (when they weren't slipping around on the ice).
I was hoping for some Waxwings against the blue sky but had no such luck. Here's a Dusky Thrush and Black Kite instead.
Not much else around the last couple of days. Varied Tit and Rustic Bunting were the most interesting. Struggling a bit for anything to say today or for any pictures. Here's a crappy one from my balcony.
So the 39th Premier League game will be played abroad then? The death of football as I knew it continues........the age of the Franchise looms. Hope I'm wrong. One thing I know though. Liverpool will never ever play at Chiyogodai stadium in Hakodate.
