2015 begins........................




A very low-key start to 2015, we had an aftertoon in Onuma, Sawara and Shikabe. The Gyrfalcon didn't come back this winter: Sawara was cold and utterly birdless. At Shikabe I was surprised to see an adult Stellers Sea Eagle high up in the trees on a hillside beside some fishermans' houses. Here's a crap pic (with 2X teleconverter) of it.


The people in the houses were apparently taking my picture whilst I was doing this...............god knows what for.

Here's a crappy pic of a male Black Woodpecker at Onuma.

  1. It's amazing that the little birds are out and about in the snow! Did you ask for a copy of their photo of you????

    1. I think they were taking my photo because they thought they might have needed it as possible police evidence later.................

    1. They were probably gawping at a foreigner with a big camera/lens pointing at something near their house.................

  7. That Black Woodpecker is a stunning bird. I had hoped to see it in Spain in July, but despite hiring a guide we bombed.
