A summer favourite


A Black-browed Reed Warbler at Yakumo this afternoon...........


If I had to pick my fave summer visitor to south Hokkaido, this would be it. They are common wherever there are grasslands..............




I'm guessing the young must be hatching soon..................I could hear lots of 'tutting' in the bushes as the female gathered food.



They seem much commoner than Sedge Warblers and Reed Warblers are (were) in the UK..............

  1. Great shots. It's warblers like that that drive me crazy when I visit Asia and I am unfamiliar with their songs.

    1. In Hokkaido there aren't so many of these kinds of warblers to confuse us............
