Back to the mundane
No more eagle shots to post (but I'm going back this weekend weather permitting). I spent a bit of time exploring locally last week, a couple of hours here or there. 2 Whooper Swans on the river in Hakodate were a surprise, I'd never seen them in town before. Also around were Long Tailed Rosefinch, Hawfinch, afew Dusky Thrush, Tufted Duck and a pair of Goldeneye. Yunokawa had more ducks including Pochard and Wigeon as well as a lone Brent Goose.
The place where the trees have been cut down is now covered with markers: I'd reckon it looks like the river is going to be 'improved' (ie concreted to provide a way to use up tax yen). I will try and at least send an email to raise my concerns, whatever good that will do................
