Another hot humid Sunday


The weather is still hot and humid.........................


Birding is always quiet at this time of year. Nothing much in town. The Rhinoceros Auklets have all disappeared: maybe they don't breed nearby after all. At Kamiiso the only thing of any interest are a small group of Goosander............


We were out west today. Birds around included Osprey, Peregrine, Little-ringed Plover, Common Sandpiper, Pacific Swift, Sand Martin and Chestnut-eared Bunting.

And this very very scruffy Pelagic Cormorant.


I couldn't get any Osprey shots today but there were lots of Japanese Green Pigeon around at various sites (these 2 birds are often the only photogenic species easily found at this time of year).

I fired off a BIF series as one came down to the sea to drink........

  1. That Cormorant made me laugh. What a scruff. Your Green Pigeons are treemendous to look at - great colouring.

    Yes, Yellowhammers are very scarce now. I went back to that regular site today and got more pics for my blog.

    1. Thanks Phil.

      I saw my first Yellowhammer near Ullswater in the late 70's, it's the only one I can clearly recall.........

  2. That Japanese Green Pigeon is spectacular - great flight shots.
