A lousy heavily cropped record shot of a genuine rarity here in Japan, a Gull Billed Tern. This was taken at Yakumo and I believe is/was only the second ever record in Hokkaido. 2 years earlier I had seen a Caspian Tern at Asabu which I'm told was the first ever in Hokkaido, shame I have no photographic evidence of that one.

Thanks for clicking this link......



  1. Congrats on this rarity Stu! Is that a lifer for you??? Not so easy to get flight pictures anyway... I'm very bad at it, and I like yours

  2. Hi Chris, this is an old photo from 2 years ago and actually it wasn't a lifer. I'd seen some in Australia 15 years earlier...............

  3. Well done!
    We get loads of them in SL.
