such striking birds. great shots.
I'd settle for one of those right now, never mind 100!
In the early nineties I was the summer warden of what had been the biggest UK BN Grebe colony. 1 pair raised 1 young - strangely, I had a very short wardening career.
This is a wonderful blog, your photography is superb. I've only recently become interested in birds, and I live in western Honshu (Hiroshima). I know the two locales are very different, but at a first glance I haven't come across much in English on birding in Japan. Can you recommend anything you've found especially useful or enjoyable? Thanks.
Thanks for the comments.Stuart-actually I've never even seen a BNG in the UK though I'm sure you weren't responsible.........Maethelwine-the kantori website (a yahoo group, do a search) might be the place to start but there isn't much in English i'm afraid.
These striking little birds with their red eyes,and mask like feathers at outercorners are adorable.Such good pictures!
Thanks for pointing me to the Kantori group. Very helpful.
