Another long day with not many birds





Today was the 4th of 4 consecutive days off, I've been all round south Hokkaido and didn't really see much. All the migrants will arrive en masse soon enough when no doubt I'll be working or it will be raining heavily...................

I was up Mt Hakodate this morning. Singing Japanese Thrush and Siberian Blue (or Japanese?) Robins were the most intersting birds but nothing posed for the camera. At Onuma a lot of the common birds were around including Japanese Pygmy Woodpeckers..................

  1. Typical when you have the time off - always happens to me too. There is a male Collared Fly quite nearby and I am stuck in.
    I love those wee Woodpeckers - I haven't even seen Lesser Spot.

    1. Hi Stuart. I've only ever seen 2 Lesser Spotteds and the last one was about 25 years ago!
