Stoners on the weed
We took a short trip to central Hokkaido last week. Not much birding, the highlight was a stop at Yakumo (near home) where there was a very tame pair of Siberian Stonechat.
They must have had a nest nearby in a big patch of weeds and didn't fly off as they normally do.
This is the female.
Only some slight cropping in all these shots. I took off the 1.4 teleconverter, I didn't need it...............
Shame about the poor light, aprat from the first early morning the weather was warm. fine and sunny for the whole trip.
This is an abundant summer visitor to Hokkaido................
