A grey Sunday

The grey skies returned today, we had a brief foray out to Kamiiso. I wanted to check for waders, all I could find was a group of 4 Ruddy Turnstone.

A pair of Osprey were fishing over the harbour, if the sky had been blue and the sun had been shining I could have gotten some nice shots, alas the sky was battleship grey.

One of them got a fish, I missed the dive as it happened on the other side of the seawall, I did see it fly past with its catch though.

Not much else around, a few Scaup on the sea, a few Pochard and Tufted Duck in the harbour. We went a little inland, a lone Crossbill flew over, a Japanese Thrush was singing a top a tall tree, a few Hawfinch here and there and a flock of Japanese White-eye were feeding in the cherry blossoms. Again, blue sky and good light would have been nice.

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

  1. The white-eye shots look very serene, especially after the excitement of the osprey with fish.
