A long day with almost no birds..............



Sawara, Shikabe, Kamiiso and Ono produced nothing of note today despite the pleasant spring weather.................

The Black Tailed Gulls are in their summer colours now................and they really are an attractive looking gull.



The 7 gull species today also included Black Headed Gull.................

  2. To see that many gulls in one day is just not possible in my part of the world. Black-headed Gulls look so different in their non-breeding plumage. When do they start to go back into non-breeding after the breeding season?

    1. They get their brown (not black!) hoods in late April. Usually.

  3. Black-tailed Gull IS a handsome gull, I agree. We've had very few here this March.

  4. It's a very attractive gull. At this time of year when they are in nuptial plumage they real merit close attention.

    1. It's the common default small gull in Japan and I usually don't really bother with then except at this time of year when they pair off.................
