2013 Best of
Here is a fairly random selection of some of my fave shots from 2013.
A bit of a strange year, I didn't leave south Hokkaido at all. I have 2 (and probably 3) big trips planned for 2014 including a trip to see the eagles in Rausu plus a visit back to the UK.
I got 4 additions to my life (and Japanese) list ; Long Tailed Skua, Hooded Crane, Saunders Gull and Red Legged Kittiwake. The only 2 additions to my Hakodate list were Black Faced Spoonbill and Great Cormorant. I found all of them except for the crane (thanks to the kind retired birder in Yakumo for putting us onto that).
I got my new lens (and the whole of 2014 and slightly beyond will be spent paying it back).
Thanks to all for visiting my blog in 2013, especially those who leave comments. They are really appreciated. I hope you all have a great 2014.
