You got a nice picture of this Ruff. I was in Sapporo from the Fall (October) to the Spring (around May) and then moved south to Honshu, near Sendai. All the time I was in Hokkaido, on camp and sometimes in town in Sapporo, I never saw a bird. I suppose they were around and all over the place but not where I happened to be. Your bird photograph is something to see. I admire you and the variety of birds you get to photograph.
Stu I could watch Ruff all day long. Not yer average wader, just so elegant. Good shot as ever.
Hi Phil, yes I miss how common Ruffs are back in Lancashire, I only see the occasional individuals here in Hokkaido.......
