Crappy April weather
A Dusky Thrush near my flat this afternoon.
Not much to report except the weather the last couple of days has been just awful. Wet and windy, the rivers are full with rain and snowmelt.
I did see tmy first Mandarin Duck of the year yesterday at Onuma. Lots of common stuff about but it was too dark for any photographs. The tame Nuthatches had to endure my flash.
I saw the first Swallows of the year and a flock of 20 or so Crossbill in the sky over Ono as well as a couple of unidentified grey geese heading north.
Just this lone Dusky Thrush in Hakodate though..............
