East/North Hokkaido Summer 2016 #5



Some birds from the grasslands of the Ohotsk coast of North Hokkaido..................


This Lanceolated Warbler was near Abashiri. It was running around in front of me and by the time I had sorted out my camera it was back in the bushes.............



My BIFwork was not up to the required standard..............


This was only the second time I'd ever seen this species (they aren't found near Hakodate AFAIK). I have however seen many many Stonechats...............amd this is as common up there as it is down here.
