On this day (February 24th)....................



February 24th 2008.

The winter of 2007/8 saw a huge influx of Common Redpolls into south Hokkaido, they were everywhere.
I saw flocks of hundreds of birds on the outskirts of Hakodate and even in the city itself there were loads of them............

This individual was feeding along the river near my flat and posed nicely for a few seconds before flying off.

  1. This is a beautiful shots. I remember that when Icame to Iceland in 2002, they were not that numerous around the city... Nowadays you can see flocks of them, everywhere in the country. They seem to do pretty fine! So I'm not surprised you got to see a lot of them.
