On this day (April 13th)...................


April 13th 2011.

A drake Garganey on the river near my apartment 2 years ago today. This was a very nice find, the only one I've ever seen in Japan and the only decent view I've had of one anywhere.

Looking back, 2011 was a great year for birds around Hakodate. I got lots of new birds for my life, Japan and local lists and a lot of them even posed for photos like this one. 2013 has been a bit of a non starter so far................I hope that changes soon.

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