A very quiet long weekend



A not terribly good pic of a young Goshawk at Shikabe this afternoon. This and a Peregrine were terrorising the Japanese Green Pigeons...........

It was grey, windy and drizzly on the coast around Shikabe. We checked Kamiiso (twice) but couldn't find any waders, at Onuma there were only common birds and mosquitoes. In the mountains near Mori we saw 3 Crested Kingfisher but they were way too far off for any pictures.

Still really hot, the weather has to break this week. Surely?


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

  1. Nice shot of the goshawk even against the white sky, Stu.
    As you mentioned about the green pigeons, think I need to go look for them soon.

  3. Nice dramatic in-flight pose. I'm waiting for the season to change and look out for these guys hunting ducks but it's so hot. Niigata had its highest temperature ever yesterday and it's so humid today I just feel sick.
