A third day in the sakura..........


I went back to Goryokau Park for the 3rd consecutive day on Friday morning and the Narcissus Flycatchers were still around. Unlike Wednesday I had plenty of time and unlike Thursday the light was great...................

I could get a little closer this time..............



There were at least 2 males singing.


There was less variety than the previous day, perhaps the clear weather meant many of the passage visitors had left, I'm sure the Narcissus will leave in a day or 2 as well. There were still quite a few Eastern Crowned Warbler, Japanese White-eye and Asian Brown Flycatcher though.......


And the Red Cheeked Starlings will stay all summer...........


In the afternoon we went to Onuma. Lots of Narcissus Flycatchers here too as well as my first Oriental Cuckoo and Japanese Green Pigeon of the year. Other stuff included Mandarin, Japanese Thrush, Japanese Grosbeak and the usual common summer visitors and residents like this very scruffy Nuthatch.......



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

  2. Some really great shots, Stu! So jealous of you to be able to photograph Narcissus Flycatchers so easily.

  3. Brilliant shots Stu. It must be wonderful when all these super birds begin to appear. By the way lots of Wood Sands in Menorca earlier in the week.
