Last outing of the year..........

There seems to have been an influx of Japanese Waxwing in south Hokkaido. The flock in the park near my flat increased to 9 and I saw 2 other (larger) flocks on the outskirts of town yesterday. These pics are from Friday.

Looks like I'm stuck with a gammy leg for the next few weeks, I'll try to stop moaning about it.
No Bohemian Waxwings at all, hopefully they'll hit town when I return in January............

Yesterday saw winter hit Hakodate at last. In Ono there was a huge flock of Rook with a few Daurian Jackdaw and in Kamiiso we found this adult White Tailed Eagle.

This individual appears every winter in the same spot.

We went to Onuma and the snow was pretty heavy. It was also very dark. I spent an hour or so withe the tame Tits and Nuthatches.

Thanks for clicking this link..........


So my next 'live' post will probably be from England, now I have to do packing and arrange lots of things..............I have a headache.
