A young Red-legged Kittiwake 4 years ago today at Yakumo.
A heavy crop and not a great photo but this is a rare bird in Japan and I was very happy to find one. It was with a large flock of Black-legged Kittiwakes and to be honest I wouldn't have noticed it if it hadn't been flying around on its own and fairly close for a bit.............it was obviously different from the others.
A bird most of us will never see.ReplyDelete
