A dreary week


A very quiet week.................


It's surprisingly cool (I'm not complaining). The tailend of a typhoon 'hit' south Hokkaido, the whole week has been very dark and grey.

A few days ago we were up at Oshamanbe. The first waders of the season were around, a flock of  7 Grey-tailed Tattlers ( see the not very good photo above).

Not much else. There were 3 species of egret, these generally don't occur in summer and are more 'autumn' birds....................only crappy heavily cropped record shots.

1 Little Egret.........


And 7 or 8 Great Egret with 1 Intermediate Egret (I think, the smaller one at the back anyway).


Other stuff around included Kingfisher, Osprey, Japanese Green Pigeon, Eastern Marsh Harrier and Peregrine.
