A Shorelark in Kamiiso today, a lifer and addition to my local/Japanese list. It was rather wary, this heavy crop was the best of a dodgy bunch of photos.
The Black Necked Grebes were still in the harbour as were Goldeneye, Scaup, Red Breasted Merganser and Great Crested Grebe. I didn't stay there too long, I went looking for some Pine Bunting in Menagawa. Unfortunately I couldn't find any. There were a few interesting birds around: Long Billed Plover, Long Tailed Rosefinch, Whooper Swan, Great Egret..............still expecting 2 lifers in a day would have been just plain greedy.
Christ, when will Liverpool stop drawing after dominating games?
