A night in Yakumo #2








More shots from Yakumo the other day..................


It was good to get the eagles in nice light for a change. These were taken from a high bridge at a good angle for BIFs.



Not much snow on the coast at Yakumo (Hakodate had lots on Friday/Saturday last week).

The season for Stellers Sea Eagle is only about 10-12 weeks in south Hokkaido, forgive me for milking it.






BIFs do get a touch repetitive................





Other birds around included Smew, Mountain Hawk Eagle, Dunlin, the usual common ducks and a flock of Whooper Swans................


Lots of Common Buzzards roadside..................


We finished the day off at Onuma where the lake is now frozen..................and here's a fox on it waking up after a nap.

  1. If I had those eagles here the milk would curdle I would stir it so much!

  2. Those shots really show off the eagle's simply huge bill - "awesome" to use a North American expression which fits the bill. Great pics of the fox too.

    1. Thanks Phil, with those huge bills they do look a bit cartoonish sometimes............
