Christmas in Onuma


We spent christmas with my parents in Onuma.................



It was very snowy.......................

3 drake Pintail were with the Whooper Swans and Mallards.



The Nuthatches are surviving the winter with no problems................


In the morning there were a lot of birds near the hotel. White Backed Woodpecker, Siskin, 5 species of tit including 2 races of Long Tailed and several Goldcrest, one very tricky species to photograph in poor light.


My parents are getting their whitest ever christmas at least..........................

  2. Male Pintails are just the best! I hope your parents enjoyed their white Christmas, and that you did too. We had 23C which was pleasant, and overnight showers should clear for the Boxing Day Test against India.
