A pretty quiet week, not much to write up plus I was feeling a bit lazy. A bit repetitive, apologies for that.
Migrants continue to pass through, the above Asian Brown Flycatcher was sharing a tree with this Grey Streaked Flycatcher.
I've been checking the grass and bushes for Siberian Rubythroats but didn't find any alas. I did find a few Arctic Warblers.
The first Dusky Thrush of the season, Narcissus Flycatcher, lots of Bullheaded Shrike and a build up in duck numbers show that the season is changing although the leaves haven't really started to change colour in Hakodate yet.
We went to Onuma this afternoon, a grey rainy day much too dark for photos. I did see a Black Woodpecker and lots of Japanese Thrushes in the thinning forest, the leaves are falling here at least.
The Night Herons are still around.
This young one provided nice views from a bridge just near my flat..........
The adults were harder to photograph as always.
There were a few BIF opportunities including Grey Heron too.
Liverpool's plight is turning into a huge joke now, if they get that 9 point penalty they'll be facing a relegation dogfight for christ's sake.
Thanks for clicking this link..........
